How to fix Galaxy S10 Speech-to-Text not working | requiring network connection

Fixing Galaxy S10 Speech-to-Text not working issue is usually simple. If you’re having a problem with this feature on your S10, follow our suggestions below.

S10 Speech-to-Text not working fix #1: Enable internet connection

If you’re getting this error “Connect to Network. No network connection. Connect to a Wi-Fi network or turn on Mobile data and try again.” it means that you need to turn on internet connection for Speech-to-text to work. Keep in mind that the words your device has recorded needs to be forwarded to Google or Samsung servers first. This won’t be possible if your Galaxy S10 is not connected to the internet. Speech-to-Text can’t work offline so the error above is also reminder that your phone needs to be connected to the internet first. You can either use mobile data or wifi in order for Speech-to-Text to work. If you are in an area with poor or spotty signal, Speech-to-Text may not work properly. Try to switch to wifi connectivity if that’s the case.

S10 Speech-to-Text not working fix #2: Reset network settings

If you have no problem with your internet connection but Speech-to-Text is still not working as it should, there may be other factors that affects it. Your next move is to ensure that you reset the device’s network settings first. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap General management.
  3. Tap Reset.
  4. Tap Reset network settings.
  5. Tap Reset settings to confirm.

S10 Speech-to-Text not working fix #3: Perform forced reboot

If your Galaxy S10 Speech-to-Text is still not working, you should try to restart the device itself. This should clear the system and possibly get rid of the bug as well. To do that, simply press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons for about 10 seconds. Once the phone has restarted, release the buttons. This is usually effective in clearing bugs that developed when a system is left running for some time. We suggest that you restart your M40 using this method at least once a week to lessen the chances of bugs.

For some Galaxy S10, there may be a slightly different way to arrive at the same method. Here’s how:

  1. Press and hold the Power + Volume Down buttons for approximately 10 seconds or until the device power cycles. Allow several seconds for the Maintenance Boot Mode screen to appear.
  2. From the Maintenance Boot Mode screen, select Normal Boot. You can use the volume buttons to cycle through the available options and the lower left button (below the volume buttons) to select. Wait for up to 90 seconds for the reset to complete.

S10 Speech-to-Text not working fix #4: Wipe cache partition

If your Galaxy S10 Speech-to-Text not working issue started right after installing an update, it’s possible that the system cache may be corrupted. Android depends on a set of temporary files called system cache to load apps quickly. If this cache gets corrupted or outdated, a device may suddenly lag, freeze, or show signs of slow performance. At other times, uncommon glitches may occur as well as overall performance of the system may also be affected. To ensure that your S10 has good system cache, we suggest that you clear it once every few months. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
  3. When the green Android logo displays, release all keys (‘Installing system update’ will show for about 30 – 60 seconds before showing the Android system recovery menu options).
  4. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe cache partition’.
  5. Press Power button to select.
  6. Press the Volume down key until ‘yes’ is highlighted and press the Power button.
  7. When the wipe cache partition is complete, “Reboot system now” is highlighted.
  8. Press the Power key to restart the device.

S10 Speech-to-Text not working fix #5: Install updates

Sometimes, Android problems are easily fixed by simply doing one thing: install update. Make sure that you update all apps and the Operating System at this time. Updates not only bring cosmetic changes but also fixes for known bugs. By default, your S10 should install updates on its own but in case you turn this automatic feature off, you want to manually check for updates under System > Software update.

S10 Speech-to-Text not working fix #6: Check for bad apps

If the S10 Speech-to-Text not working occured right after installing a new app, it’s possible that you may have a third party app issues. If you can’t be sure what app may be to blame, you can also restart the device to safe mode. You’ll have to do more isolating efforts in this one but it should help if you think that a bad app is the reason for your trouble. To boot the phone to safe mode:

  1. Turn the device off.
  2. Press and hold the Power key past the screen with the device name.
  3. When ‘SAMSUNG’ appears on the screen, release the Power key.
  4. Immediately after releasing the Power key, press and hold the Volume down key.
  5. Continue to hold the Volume down key until the device finishes restarting.
  6. Safe mode will display in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  7. Release the Volume down key when you see ‘Safe Mode’.
  8. Check for the problem.

If your Galaxy S10 Speech-to-Text works normally on safe mode and you think that you have an app problem, you should investigate further. To identify the culprit, you can use the method of elimination. Here’s how:

  1. Boot to safe mode.
  2. Check for the problem.
  3. Once you’ve confirmed that a third party app is to blame, you can start uninstalling apps individually. We suggest that you begin with the most recent ones you added.
  4. After you uninstall an app, restart the phone to normal mode and check for the problem.
  5. If your S10 is still problematic, repeat steps 1-4.

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap Apps.
  3. Tap on More settings at the upper right (three-dot icon).
  4. Select Reset app preferences.
  5. Restart your Galaxy S10 and check for the problem.

S10 Speech-to-Text not working fix #7: Factory reset

If nothing has worked up to this point, the final solution that you can try is factory reset. Because Speech-to-Text is a default function, returning the entire software settings to defaults will most likely help in this situation.
