If you've ever had a nasty surprise when your phone or smart speaker is a & # 39; hey Google & # 39; replied after you said & # 39; my friend Kay is thrifty & # 39 ;, you know how distracting and annoying it is. Google also knows, and according to this official blog post, they are doing something about it.
With an update to the Google Assistant system and the Home app, users can adjust how sensitive the Google Assistant listening function is. As a result, the sense of detection is activated more or less often. So if you're tired of activating the speaker when you (or your TV) say random things, you can lower the sensitivity. Alternatively, if you work in a loud environment, such as a kitchen or a garage, you can boost it up so that Google can hear you about ambient noise.
Google says it will roll out this option in the coming weeks. and that it will be available through the Home app.
The sensitivity of individual devices can be adjusted to reduce the chances of your Nest Hub being activated while your phone will hear you sooner. Google also says that speech detection improves through longer Voice Match sentences.
