Is anyone else having a problem using the voice button on their remote?

When I use the voice button on my dish remote, I now go to a screen that says I need to activate google assistant. But when I click on ‘ activate Google assistant”, I just go back to the TV show I was watching. My voice button doesn’t work anymore, but it used to.

I have the same problem.  Why should I have to buy a Google Assistant to use with my dish system?  It worked fine the way it was.  If is not broke do not fix it.

What the hell does that mean?  We have to accept the Google Terms and Conditions in order to get back the normal voice remote functionality?  And if so ... why is this necessary?

So much better if you simply quit **bleep**ing around with things by doing away with all these daily "updates".  Daily upselling is more like it.  And each one makes  DISH slower and worse than the one before.
