One of the most user requested features in history has finally been added to the Google Assistant. It’s called Continued Conversation and it means that you’ll have to say “Hey Google” or “OK Google” only once at the beginning to invoke the Assistant’s attention. This functionality was unveiled back at Google IO in May.
Once the conversation gets going, you can just normally talk to it in a natural back and forth, without the need to use “Hey Google” or “OK Google” before each of your interventions. You can say “Thank you” or “Stop” once you’re done. Alternatively, the conversation will automatically end when you’re no longer talking to the Assistant.
Continued Conversation is available starting today on Google Home, Home Mini, and Home Max smart speakers. It’s an opt-in setting which you can turn on from Settings > Preferences > Continued Conversation in the Google Assistant app.
