How to Turn Off 'Ok Google' Command on Android Device

We have many virtual assistant apps these days, but it was the Google Assistant that we use the most out of all. Google Assistant is a part of Android, and it comes built-in on every smartphone running on the Android operating system.

Google Assistant is a perfect virtual assistant app for all needs. It can perform a wide range of tasks for you like making a call, checking the live scores, reading the news, setting up an alarm, replying to your SMS, and more.

While Google Assistant is a handy tool, many users don’t like its voice activation feature. Many users prefer to activate Google Assistant via hardware buttons or tapping on the app itself. If you also fall in the same category, you need to turn off the Hey Google and Voice match feature of the Google Assistant app.
