Google has started rolling out support for its “Continued Conversation” feature on Smart Display which will allow its users to have a continued conversation with the Google Assistant by keeping it active and listening so that they can continue to ask follow-up questions without having to repeat the phrase “OK, Google,” every time. This feature was already available on the audio-only Google Home, Home Mini, and Home Max devices.
The latest rollout will now allow the user to have continued conversation on Google Assistant devices with screens like the Google Home Hub and Lenovo Smart Display. This feature has to be activated manually by heading to the setting of the device and selecting the Preferences option. Then tap on the Continued conversation in the Google Assistant App which will be only available for Google Assistant users in English as of now.
While you are in conversation with the Assistant, it will be listing to the follow-up comment and you will also see a small Assistant icon on the corner of the screen once this feature is turned on the Smart Displays. For ending a conversation, you can always. Give the commands like Thank you, Thanks, Google or I’m done and the assistant will turn off its microphone.
Although, the user cannot have a conversation with the assistant when during a phone call, while alarms are going off or while listening to media. The microphone stays on almost for eight seconds after the previous conversation and if it does not detect any speech it will turn off automatically. When the microphone has opened the lights on the top of the Google Home device will light up.
Moreover, when there is a conversion with the Google assistant, anyone in the room can participate in the conversation and ask the follow-up questions. Are you planning to use this feature with your Smart Displays? Comment in the section below and stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more similar updates.
