Earlier this month, Google announced of some new features coming to Assistant-enabled devices this year. Some of the more exciting were sticky notes for smart displays, Scheduled Actions, and improved privacy controls.
Now, we’re getting a glimpse at one of the features I’m most excited for, the ability to adjust the sensitivity of the Assistant hotwords. The upcoming feature was recently spotted by the guys over at 9to5Google during an APK teardown of the most recent version of the Google app beta.
While dissecting version 10.93 of the beta Google app, they discovered some strings referencing the new feature. The strings include settings that will allow you to “raise or lower this device’s sensitivity to make it more or less responsive” to the hotword “Hey Google.”
