I absolutely HATE the sudden reading of my text messages out loud ... sitting at my desk and "YOU HAVE A TEXT MESSAGE FROM ". then it goes on to read the private message to my colleagues, mom, boss ... I cant figure out how to turn it off, pretty sure a hammer will solve it but that will probably void my warranty... right ?
Can anyone help me out?!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just has the same issue. Randomly started reading my texts out loud. My issue was my galaxy watch settings. Under connects/Bluetooth/ the gear icon next to the connected device (galaxy watch) then I turned off the CALL option. And boom. No more reading texts out loud.
@JIMMYJONES123: Please can you confirm the model number and current Android version of your device, and I will look into this for you. In the meantime, try going to Settings > Accessibility > Screen Reader > Voice Assistant > Off, or look for a text-to-speech option, and switch it off.
Actually there are 2 text to speech options google and the general/Language and input one. that onoe doesnt let me turn it off. just change the language pitch and Speech rate.
For a service to read your text messages they would normally need notification access.
In settings>apps>(3 dots)special access>notification access
Do you have anything other than led icon, Samsung dex, or smart view turned on?
Any updates on this?
I have a Note 10+ and am experiencing I think this exact thing. What I've figured out so far plus a workaround I've figured out.
Could you check if the same thing happens in Safe Mode?
To do this press and hold your Power Button until the three options appear, then press and hold on 'Power Off', you will then see the option for Safe Mode. Tap it and your phone will boot back up. Monitor the issue for a little while and then get back to us.
