Google Offline Speech Recognition

Can anyone successfully use Google Voice typing offline in Cantonese right now? Having major issues on two different devices in downloading the Cantonese offline Google Voice typing file. It says update available, but I download the update and nothing installs/nothing changes. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, restarted my phones, tried changing Cantonese to the default language, checked for updates, cleared cache in my download manager, prayed, and clicked my heels three times. I'm at my wits end.

Phones are: LG G6 and Samsung A5. Both are running. Android Nougat 7.0.

Help?

Are you doing speech to text for web searches or in keyboard?

Since you reported using LG G6 and Sammy A5, both ship with their respective manufacturers' keyboards. Why not try Gboard instead (Google Play link). I find Gboard handles features better than Sammy's keyboard. Voice to text is also managed at the keyboard level (unless you're doing it through Google Now).

Keyboard. Should have mentioned that and that I also tried gboard on both devices. English (Canada) offline works fine, but Cantonese isn't working and doesn't seem to be downloading correctly (not sure about other languages).
