Are you tired of saying "Hey Google" or "Ok Google" over and over to give orders to your Google Home device? ? You're not alone. Much of the feedback Google has received about their home devices is that people keep saying "OK / Hey Google" if they want their smart speaker to do several things during the same conversation.
Well, you asked, and Google listened in and introduced a continuation conversation feature that lets you use the wake phrase only once. Continued conversation is now available on your device and you can find more information here.
: Make sure the homepage is set up
You need to set up Google Home and connect to the Google Assistant for the account. Enabling Continued Conversation on Google Assistant will affect your Google Home. If the Google Assistant app has not been used for a while, open it and make sure it's fully updated. The wizard should be updated automatically when it is open. Make sure you're signed in to the correct account (the one you use on Google Home) before you start!
Note that the Continuous Conversation feature is currently only available in the US and only available in English. Further rollouts are expected in the future.
Step 2: Open the wizard settings
With the Google Assistant open, navigate to the Explore button in the upper-right corner – the icon looks like three dots. Select this icon and a menu with many maintenance options will be displayed. Select Settings from this menu
Step 3: Go to Settings
In the menu Settings you will See which account is signed in (a good time to re-verify that it's the right account), which devices are connected, and what options you have for managing that account. Select the option Settings with the symbol of segmented lines.
Step 4: Enable Continuous Conversations
The Settings menu contains various settings that you can change for Google Assistant. how to choose another voice. One of these options will be Continued Conversation . Select it to enable the feature. You are ready to go!
Step 5: Practice Continuous Conversation
Start a normal command with Google Home and add more instructions as needed. For example, you could say, "OK, Google, turn on the TV," then say, "Also dim the living room light" and, while you remember, "Oh, and turn off the security system." With Continued Conversations enabled, your home should do all these things without you having to say goodbye to Google again. This works, for example, when scheduling events, requesting information, and so on.
Here are some things to keep in mind about Continued Conversation: The mode ends eight seconds after the last command. This gives you ample time to think of something else you might want to do, but generally ends before Home accidentally responds to other conversations.
If eight seconds seems a little too long, you can stop Continued Conversation immediately by saying "Thank you" or "Stop". Just do not accidentally say thank you if you still give orders.
