The step by step guide to turning off the Google Assistant on an Android smartphone
Google Assistant is Google’s answer to Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri. It has come a long way since its initial release in 2016, and it is now the most advanced and dynamic of the available assistants.
Google has widely distributed Assistant, not only on its own hardware but also through partnerships with other firms, resulting in Google Assistant being found in a wide range of devices, from refrigerators and headphones to speakers and cars. Google Assistant debuted as an extension of Google Now, with the goal of becoming more personal while expanding on Google’s existing “OK Google” voice capabilities.
Initially, Google Now intelligently retrieved relevant information for you. It knew where you worked, your meetings and travel plans, your favorite sports teams, and your interests so that it could offer you information that was relevant to you.
Google Now has long been replaced by Assistant, which combines these personalized aspects with a wide range of voice control. Google Assistant accepts both text and voice input and will continue the discussion regardless of which technique you use.
Now, if you are someone who owns an Android smartphone, but you don’t feel the need to use the Google Assistant, there is actually a provision to turn it off, and in this guide, we will show you, step by step, how you can turn off the Google Assistant on an Android smartphone.
Step 1. Open the ‘Google‘ app on your Android smartphone.
