If you rely on Google Assistant a lot and it suddenly stops working I know how frustrating it can, be because I was feeling exactly that just a few moments ago.

Restart your device

First Things First, restarting a device can solve 80% of the day to day problems you face in a smartphone.

Tap on the Settings in the scroll down to find phone under the devices section. There you will find the preferred input it should be set to Voice instead of a keyboard.

Retrain Google Assistant with your voice

Go back to the Settings page of the Google app, enter the Voice Model option.

Update the Google app

And there isn’t actually any solution for it as of now. You still can do all the things mentioned above, but it is very unlikely that this issue is going to be fixed unless there is an update from Xiaomi itself.
