Sometimes even when you do not need Google Assistant or issue a command, it will pick up your voice, which can be frustrating. The best way is to set the app preferences, so it’ll only pick up voice commands when you’re in the car.

  • Go to Settings and tap Apps.
  • Tap the Three Vertically-Stacked Dots at the top-right for more options and tap Default apps.
  • Tap on Device Assistance App (or Assist App).
  • You can change various settings here, and they’ll be different depending on your device.
  • Tap the Gear icon to dig deeper, access more options, and select Voice Match.
  • You can now turn off Access with Voice Match but leave it on while driving.
