Cause

Android's offline voice typing feature allows voice typing without an internet connection, but it does not work well in the following situations:

  • The phone's cell service plan does not include data.
  • The cell data limit has been reached.

Additional Notes

Offline voice typing works well without cell data only if the cellular data setting is toggled off, which can interfere with cellular services such as texting.
