Advances in simulation and understanding of natural language have made it possible for anyone to have a virtual assistant at home.
Until recently, thinking about an intelligent voice assistant was something that led us to imagine science fiction films. Advances in simulation and understanding of natural language have made it possible for anyone to have a virtual assistant at home.
Google and Amazon are the two who have the most advanced assistants, but despite that, we always have to call them, so that they know we are talking to them.
Google wants to change this so that we don’t always have to use the “OK Google” command in some very specific circumstances. Ok Google will not be needed for alarms, calls and timers.
Two years ago, Google started making it possible to stop smart speaker timers and alarms simply by saying “Stop”. And yes, we put it in English because that function did not reach other languages at the moment.
A function has been detected in the settings of the Google Assistant application on Android that will expand this feature. This way, when our smartphone is playing a scheduled alarm or beeping because a timer has run out, we can silence it with a single word. Well, whoever has the assistant in English can now, since the other languages, do not yet have this feature available. They can also answer calls, or reject them. Basically, Google wants that, when a command is very obvious, we don’t need to say “OK Google” in advance.
It is a feature in development, as it cannot be activated at the moment, even if the configuration already appears for some people.
This seems to be a very useful feature, which no longer requires you to invoke the wizard for simple actions, such as saying Stop to silence an alarm. We have to wait and see if it reaches other languages and if we can use the wizard without commands in other activities.
