Android: Unlocking Phone with Voice Commands

Local Performer

I use my phone to play Pandora while riding my motorcycle. I use a Cardo Packtalk Bold Bluetooth headset as the vehicle to get Pandora from my phone to my ears.  The Cardo PT Bold allows me to talk to Google.   If I command OK Google Play xxxxx on Pandora Google tells me I have to unlock my phone first.  You can't unlock the phone Hands Free.  Is there a solution?

Hi there, @bigjohnsd. 👋

Thanks for sharing your feedback about using voice commands with your motorcycle. 

Are you already playing Pandora when this occurs? Or, launching Pandora at the start of your ride?

Can you also send over a bit more info about your device?

  • Model:
  • Carrier:
  • Android version (Settings > About Phone):
  • Pandora version (Go to Profile, then select Settings. Scroll to the bottom of the screen for the version number):

Let me know. 🎧
