Activate Google smart speaker soon without wake word

Cheap Lepai amp

Google is said to be testing a smart display feature that would activate Google Assistant by proximity instead of using the "Hey Google" or "OK Google" wake words. Basically, with this, there will not be any need to repeat the wake words for each and every command to the Google voice assistant.

As spotted by Android Central, leaker Jan Boromeusz shared a YouTube video demonstrating the feature on a Nest Hub Max.

If users have separate personal and work accounts, they can now set up multiple accounts on Google Assistant devices to see and interact with upcoming events and meetings in one place - without having to switch between their personal or work accounts. So, it's not clear yet if the company is going to make a public launch of the functionalities, but Boromeusz is found asking different kinds of information on the voice app of Google without once uttering the wake word.

Three bundles are being made available including Google's Nest Hub, cameras and doorbell products and powered by Virgin Media broadband. Boromeusz says the device will listen for commands after "detecting presence", so if someone is in front of the screen, it will start answering questions.

Trump Posts '60 Minutes' Interview After Complaining Anchor Was Biased
As Stahl commented at one point that Trump was offering attack after attack, Trump responded: "It's not attack, it's defence". CBS News on Thursday called out the White House for violating an agreement it had with the network and posting U.S.

According to 9to5Google, Home & Away Routines on Google Home is now available for several users; however, the company is yet to officially announce the update's rollout.

Currently, smart display is using Nest Hub Max's ultrasound features to sense the presence of a person to adjust the shown facts and figures. These capabilities are now only used to adjust the information that it displays.

Of course, this introduces a fair few privacy concerns. When detected, it starts processing further commands. If this does make it out of internal testing, I suspect Google will include the option to disable it.
