    Has anyone else experienced flaky text dictation? It just started today for me.... Dictation has been working almost flawlessly for the past week. Today however, every two or so texts I try to respond to it says "Apple Watch unable to dictate". If I go into the amazon app immediately after dictation works perfect as usual. Very unusual bug to say the least.. Anyone else experience this?

    Interesting... Maybe a problem with Apple servers? That doesn't explain why other apps work fine though... My phone can dictate the message perfectly also.

    I too have had issues intermittently. Somedays it's flawless, others it's useless. There's no in-between.

    I'd noticed that on my iPhone somedays (not recently, though). Literally some days I can't make a single voice-activated call because it doesn't understand the name I'm saying. 99% of the time it's fine. I'm pretty darn certain it's Apple's end that's the issue.
