Sony halts update that replaces Siri with Google Assistant on two headsets
Sony has temporarily halted the update that adds Google Assistant integration to some of its headphones
Since both headphones didn't come with Google Assistant out of the box, the pair do not feature dedicated buttons for wearers to press in order to activate the virtual assistant. Instead, once the update is disseminated, the noise cancellation button will be pressed by those wearing the headphones whenever they need to summon Google Assistant. This is faster than verbally calling for the digital helper, which is another option that users can choose. The update, once it is resumed, is scheduled to be sent out to three other Sony headphones including the WH-CH900N, WH-H900N and the WF-1000X models.
Several Sony headphones came out of the box with the ability to summon Apple's Siri assistant. That feature will be deactivated once the new update is installed with Google Assistant integration.
