Do you ever get annoyed when you try to have a conversation with someone but your Google Assistant gets automatically set off for no absolute reason on your phone?

 

Yeah?

 

Or maybe you haven’t experienced that yet, but you might feel awkward saying “OK Google” every time and with the whole idea of talking with your phone. 

 

Yes as much as we are a social species, talking with our phones? 

 

Just no.

 

Or maybe it’s just that you don’t even use it so why keep it in your phone in the first place when it could be accidentally set off when during an important conversation? 

 

These are all reasons why you would want to turn off the OK Google feature on your phone and I’ll show you how you can do that to save you the trouble.

 

Though this doesn’t mean you will completely turn off “OK Google” from your phone. 

 

You can still use your Google Assistant when you long press your Home button anytime so you have the option to return back whenever you get lonely. 

 

Sounds great? 🙂

 

Alright.

 

I’ll show you how you can turn off OK Google on Android in just a few seconds.
