"Ok Google" detection not working - "Can't use the microphone."

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Android 7.0
Google App v6.10.37.21

Google App > Settings > Voice > '"Ok Google" detection' > 'From any screen'

This brings up the "Search by voice from any screen" setup wizard.

As soon as I tap "Get started", I see a message stating: "Can't use the microphone. Restart your device."

Restarting does not help.

This also happened in Android 6.x, before I upgraded to Android 7.0.

I can record my voice in Samsung's Voice Memos app without any issues.

Google App has all permissions (including Microphone) enabled.

Any ideas?
