As some may know, Google Assistant only works with device awake, but this means to let the screen on all the time, which is not good.
Is there some way to turn off the screen but keeping the phone awake ? I´ve tried to create several macros, but it doesn´t work. I don´t know what I´m doing wrong. When I disable the screen, the phone sleeps also, and although in this state, all macros work, like telling the time, etc, google assistant doesn´t work and I don´t know why. Any help ? Thanks !

I believe 'OK Google' can be configured to run on many devices with the screen off.

You could try the keep device awake action to try and stop the phone sleeping, but I'm not sure if this will work in your case.

Nothing yet. I wish to allow "Ok google" all the time, but keeping my smartphone "sleeping" without consuming too much battery. I didn´t get yet. If you know ( or someone knows ) how to do that, please, inform us ! 

Thanks.

Does it have S Voice, do you use it, and if so, does it work when the screen is off?
