Has Google Assistant been removed entirely from Alcatel Smartflip phones??
I recently saw notification on my Smartflip phone that software had been updated. Didn't make note of the date, but I now can find no evidence that Google Assistant is loaded on the phone. Here are latest Details from Settings:
SVN: 05 (software version number?)
Software: KaiOS 2.5.2
Build Number: ZX4OuaO0
Platform Version: 48.0a2
Build Identifier: 20210902101742
No more voice-assisted SMS messaging, which I absolutely relied on. No more answers to oddball questions. And I can't even find Google Assistant as a downloadable option under Utilities on the KaiOS Store app.
When I press and hold down the large OK button, there's no response at all.
Google Assistant was the most important value-add function for me on the Smartflip. Can anyone confirm that it's been intentionally withdrawn by AT&T or Alcatel? Or is there some setting on the phone I need to change to re-activate it?
