No More Accidental Activations, Google’s Home Devices Are Getting Activation Sensitivity Controls
It appears that Google is on the cusp of launching “Hey Google” sensitivity controls for their smart home devices, according to a report.
Last year in September, rumors were making rounds that Google was working on sensitivity controls for the “Hey Google” activation. Recently, Mishaal Rahman from XDA Developers found that this feature is all set to be launched to the public. He came across it in the Home App’s code. This sensitivity option will feature in every Google Assistant device.
Users will be able to customize the activation sensitivity in all the Google devices, including Nest Mini and Smart TVs. One can do this as long as the device is registered in the Home app. This feature will allow the users to determine just how easily they want the Assistant to hear them. You can choose from a slider with values ranging from “least sensitive” to “most sensitive.” This will help in keeping accidental activations to a minimum. The feature is not officially launched yet, but you can find it in the Home App’s code.
