I can't seem to get my phone to ring/respond when I ask my Google speaker to find it. I never had this issue with my old phone, a Google pixel 3, and it only now started with my pixel 5. How do I fix this? It's like my phone doesn't even get the message from the Google speaker.

Hi Jessica Quast,
Do you have any filters or downtime setup in Digital Wellbeing?
Do multiple people use your speaker? If so, you'll need to link your account/voice to the speaker?
