Google Assistant Now Responds to ‘Hey Google’ on Smartphones

Posted by at 10:28 am on October 24, 2017

Google┬áhas updated its voice-based assistant on Android smartphones to respond to a new catchphrase. In order to activate Google Assistant by voice, smartphone owners have until now needed to speak the “Okay Google” catchphrase.

Some feel the phrase is awkward to speak. A new update pushed to the Google Assistant app allows people to use the slightly-easier-to-say “Hey Google” phrase instead. This latter phrase has been available to the Google Home product for a while.

Google Assistant is free to download from the Google Play Store.
