How to Prevent Google from Listening to You?

- Advertisement -

As an Android user, you would come to realize that Google voice assistant is one of the most useful tools on your smartphones.

Why is that? With it, you can do a bunch of stuff like control your device, voice commands, voice search, and it also helps you carry out given tasks with the help of the magic word “Ok Google.”

Google Assistant is AI (Artificial intelligence), so it learns and understands your commands and uniquely reacts to them. With its help, you can communicate with anyone around the world because it gives you access to dozens of languages across the globe.

However, all your commands given to the Assistant are recorded and saved to Google directly to improve the accuracy of the Assistant reactions and also to make your experience better.

Sadly, Google’s Assistant keeps coming up whenever you used the magic word “Ok Google” without the intention of calling it up, which can interrupt your work sometimes. Thank goodness, there’s a way around that.

In this article, we will talk about some of the ways how you can prevent Google from listening to you. Check out the steps below:

Block Voice History on Google History

This will prevent you from discontinuing your voice history associated with your Google account. To do this, open and locate the Google’s Activity Controls page and sign in with your Google credentials.

Then select the Voice and Audio Activity then turn off the option. This action will stop linking your voice recordings with your Google account.

Turn Off Google Detection

This will stop Google from detecting your voice recordings and commands. To do this, navigate to the Settings app on your device and tap on Google. Next, click on Search on the Services header.

And finally, toggle off the option to disable the ‘Ok Google’ detection on your device, or you can choose to block the ‘Ok Google’ option for Google Maps.

Block Google from Accessing Your Device’s Microphone

To do this, go to your device Settings and click on Apps and Notifications. Then go to “View all installed apps” and click on See to view the apps option. Next, locate the Google App and click on the permission option to block the Microphone slider.

With the help of this article, we are hopeful you can get back to owning your privacy. Let us know what you think about this article by sharing your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
