Google Assistant is reportedly getting better at recognizing sound
Google says it is tinkering with training procedures for its Voice Match feature, which allows Google Assistant to recognize the voice of up to six people on one speaker, screen, or device supported by an Assistant, such as Google Nest Mini and Google Nest Hub Max.
Reporting from the Tech Hive page, Google Assistant previously recognized the voice with the phrase ‘Hi Google’, but the new process will give the Assistant a few more phrases to recognize.
When users train Google Assistant to use Voice Match
users are asked to repeat a series of phrases, including “OK Google, play my practice playlist,” “OK Google, where is the nearest post office,” “Hey Google, remind me to buy flowers,” and “Hi Google, what time the sun rises. “
“Using more and longer phrases during Voice Match training will enable Google Assistant to better identify who is involved with much higher accuracy,” Google said.
Separately, Google also announced that users will soon be able to adjust the sensitivity of devices powered by Google Assistant when it comes to hearing the words “Hey Google” and “OK Google”.
Lowering the sensitivity setting of “Hey Google” can come in handy if, for example, you find that Google Assistant often wakes up accidentally because he thinks he heard the phrase. On the other hand, increasing the sensitivity of “Hey Google” can help in a harsher environment where the Assistant continues to miss words.
You can adjust the sensitivity of “Hey Google” independently for various speakers and the display of Google Home and Nest.
