You may have signed upin your Google account. Google says turning on your smart speaker can better understand your voice over time, which is great. But Google stores every verbal interaction you have with your Google Home device . If your Google Home thinks you're talking to it while you're not, it can save clips from those tapped conversations online.
Hopefully, Google Home's new sensitivity setting slows down these unintended triggers, better protecting not only your privacy, but also your sanity. Here's what you need to know about the new feature.
The update will be rolled out in the coming weeks & # 39;
The update was announced in a blog post on April 23, in which Google says it will "roll out" the feature in the coming weeks. Google's release like these updates can be somewhat haphazard, so while some users may see the new setting in their Google Home app this week or next week, others may have to wait a little longer.
If you don't see it on yours, check your phone's app store to see if it's updated (here'sand here are instructions for Android). If it has the latest update and still no sensitivity setting, you have to wait for the next update.
Hey, Google, why so sensitive?
If the sensitivity setting is available, you can adjust it as follows:
1. Open the Google Home app and find the device you want to change the sensitivity of the password. It should work with the OG Google Home, Google Home Mini ($ 39 at Crutchfield) and and Nest Hub ($ 99 at Walmart) and Hub Max .
2. Tap the device you want to customize and then tap Settings (the gear icon) in the top right corner.
3. Scroll down and under Device Settings tap Hey Google Sensitivity .
4. Drag the slider higher to make Google Home hear your voice better and lower to make it less likely. If you're right, go back and adjust your other speakers if necessary.
Now that you can adjust the sensitivity of the password on your Google Home speaker, you can put it almost anywhere. For example, tryfor better sound. And whether you are a new Google Home user or an old professional, you will not regret . Google Home has come a long way from catching up with Alexa, but prove it is still not perfect.
