Google Assistant update makes conversations more natural
Apparently, many people have been complaining that they have to add “Hey Google” before each follow-up question for the Assistant, so Google made it so you'll only have to use that specific voice command the first time you start a conversation.
According to Google, the new feature is starting to roll out today and can be enabled from the Settings / Preferences / Continued Conversation in the Google Assistant application. If you tap on the Continued Conversation toggle, after you ask the Assistant a question, you will be able to ask a follow-up, set a reminder, or do other tasks without having to say “Hey Google” each time.
Keep in mind that you still need to activate Google Assistant using a physical trigger or the “Ok Google” and “Hey Google” commands when you want to start using it. With the latest update, chatting with the Google Assistant got much easier, and we can't help but wonder why didn't Google think to add this earlier. Oh well, as the saying goes, better late than never.
