Submit

One of the biggest benefits of having a Google Pixel is that it is really well with "Hey Google" detection, a lot better than other Android devices. However, the problem occurs if you have a lot of Google Home devices in your house because in that case, the Pixel ends up picking up queries that are meant for other Google Home devices. That is why, in this guide, we are focusing on how to turn off Hey Google on your Pixel. The process is not at all complicated but will certainly help you get the most out of your Pixel without it picking up commands meant for other devices.

As I have said before, Pixel makes the use of Google Assistant really nicely and I would expect nothing else. However, the "Hey Google" command is universal and applies to all other Google Home devices as well as other Android phones, too. Therefore, if you have multiple devices, you might end up confusing your phone. Thankfully, if you want to turn off Hey Google on your Pixel, the process is not at all complicated.
