    One thing I liked about the BlackBerry assistant is that after I dictate some phrase to send as a text through the voice recognition, it would read back what it understood so that I know what it understood to send.

    With the google assistant, it just shows what I said on the screen without reading it to me. So I don't know what it understood without looking at it, which is just not possible when I am driving.

    Any idea to enable it say what it understood?

    I use Dragon Mobile Assistant, and it reads it back. It can also post to facebook and twitter for you, as well as use your own "wake-up" phrase (i've had instances where I was talking about a google feature to a friend and it woke up my tablet & phone because it thought i said "ok google".. VERY ANNOYING!). The wake-up phrase I use with Dragon is "Hello DroidBerry"... which is something i'm probably never going to say in normal conversation.. lol

    The only gripe I have with Dragon is it uses its own alarm/timer built-in rather than using your default ones on your phone. Everything else like the GPS Navigation and Calendar functions work great!

    just make sure to disable the Google App if you choose to go with a different Voice Assistant
