Trying to get a voice activated solution for sending messages from Hangouts. We use TING for voice and data but not for texting. Can text (or message) from Hangouts without any problem but cannot do so if using Google Now (OK Google) or S VOICE (Hi Galaxy).
Under Settings, More, Default Applications, Messages -- have Hangouts set as the default.
Have tried to Disable "Messages" but that option is greyed out. I have done the "Force Stop" but it keeps starting back up.
If I try to use Google Now (OK Google), it always comes back and says "Account not found: firstname.lastname@example.org" so it doesn't ever send. I am signed in and able to manually send through Hangouts, check my gmail, etc.
If I try to use S Voice (Hi Galaxy), it appears to send but then I get back a message "Your are not allowed to send text messages." That would mean it's trying to use TING to send when I want Hangouts to send it.
What else can I try? Any other settings that would need to be changed?
