My phone received the most recent update on Monday and since then it has affected Google Assistant/Bixby.
For certain tasks its now asking me to unlock my phone, even though the setting to use phone while locked is turned on.
So, it will:
Call/text my mum with screen locked
Call/text my dad with screen locked
Call my brother, but will not text him with screen locked
Will not open spotify with screen locked.
I have even gone as far as setting up Bixby and I am having a similar issue, except Bixby PRETENDS to text my brother but actually doesnt and still will not open spotify.
Why when the setting is turned on to use phone while locked is it asking me to unlock my phone??
It makes no difference whether it is attached to my bluetooth or not.
