Hi all,

I would like to know if there is the possibility to set as my default search engine the Google engine when I swipe up at the main screen. It would be great if you can change it.
Plus, does anybody know how can I enable "Ok google" function? When i go to voice match option and try to enable it nothing is happening.

Thanks in advance.

There is no way to change the swipe up action on default launcher. I suggest you try a 3rd party launcher that might have this functionality. Sadly, OK Google doesn't work on any MIUI ROMs based on Pie :(

Huh?

OK google / voice match is working fine on both my mi 8 and mi pad 4. On both official roms and now xiaomi.eu weekly
If anything that's a device specific issue, not a miui 10 or android pie issue.

Or your language / location isn't supported by Google.
Or differs from the device language

Nope. Every bit of what you're saying is wrong.
On Mi Pad 4, sure, OK Google works fine, because it doesn't have a Snapdragon 845 and doesn't run on Android Pie.
Mi 8, however, has both SD845 and Pie, so for unknown reasons, the audio driver doesn't work with OK Google on China ROMs specifically.
This is the case for all SD845 devices running on China Pie ROM (MI8, MI8EE, MI8Pro and MIMIX3).
We are using the audio driver from Global ROM for MI8 and MI8Pro, and that fixes the problem on weekly ROMs. (we don't touch it on Stable, so it remains broken)
Since there is no Global Developer ROMs for MI8EE and MIMIX3, we can't fix OK Google for these devices right now.
However, it should be possible once a Global Developer ROM is available for MIMIX3, but for MI8EE, OK Google will never work unless Xiaomi China decides to fix it, which is very unlikely.

On mi pad 4 original China Rom the only way to get it to work was by setting voice match language (Google settings \ voice input \ language) same as device language = English.
Even adding German as a secondary language would break it again, no idea why.
This is why I assumed that device language has to match the primary voice match language.
After flashing xiaomi.eu weekly it just worked.

On my MI 8 ok google / voice match was fixed starting with global beta update 8.11.23.
Kept working after recently switching to xiaomi.eu weekly.

Sorry I wasn't aware that this actually a China source issue, welp

Thanks for the comprehensive explanation of the problem! Do you, by any chance, have a similar explanation for the notification issues, which also seem to be related to some sort of interface problem between Google apps and the ROM?

Hello,

explanation of the problem. I would like to know if you want to pass this fix to the stable ROM either, or it will only stay in the weekly ROM.

Could you report the files that have been changed from the ROM so that I can try to fix it here temporarily?
I use Mi8

thankful

sorry my bad english

Give this a try, just flash it:

We may start fixing OK Google on 10.3 Stables.
