Samsung Active 2 watch Google Assistant

Is there any possible way users could use Google's Assistant instead of Bixby on the lastest Active watch?? I can't stand bixby and I use Google's assistant all the time. I have a Fitbit versa at the moment however I want to upgrade to a smartwatch capable of 4g/LTE connection. When I go on runs I hate bringing my phone so I want a smart watch that I can make calls and recieve them but also have google assistant so I can easily say "ok, google" and be promoted with an actual assistant that can actually be useful unlike the bixby assistant. I love Samsung's products as I but I refuse to use bixby. I was thinking about preordering the Active 2 but if I'm going to be forced to use bixby I'm just going to buy another brand. Is there any news about Google's assistant being accessible on any Samsung smart watches in the near future?

You have to go into the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone > Notifications > and here you can turn on which apps you want to be able to send notifications to your watch. Simple.

 

Please don't come on a forum spewing disinformation until you've done the proper research (i.e. googled it). You just end up making yourself look like a fool.

Did you enable notification access? I get all of these and can do smart replies on the watch.

Why do you reccomend an apple product on Samsung servers? Such a disgrace. Especially with the false information provided.

I agree. Not impressed with Bixby at all. Google Assistant is the better choice. Samsung missed the boat on this one. Frustrating.

I used this work around but it still has limitations. It's better than nothing.
