Enable the Ok Google Hot Word on Pixel 3
When you setup your Pixel 3 phone, you’ll be prompted to enable the Ok Google hot word. There is no secret what this special command can do for oy. For example, you can use your voice to do actions like convenient searches, getting directions, making reservations or creating reminders.
Are you curious to see if there’s any snow in the weather forecast? Then, just say, “Ok Google, will it snow tomorrow?”
This sounds tempting, but what if you haven’t done it at the initial setup? Is it too late now? Not a chance. Here’s what you have to do:
Set up Ok Google right away
If you choose not to take care of things from the start, you can set it up at other times easily. Just unlock your Pixel phone and say Ok Google and the setup page will open. Here you can find a lot of cool stuff.
At the start, you’ll be prompted to say “Ok Google” three times so the app can learn how your voice sounds. This is to ensure only you can launch the Google search with no issues.
You can though retrain voice model if this doesn’t work as it should. Yes, you may teach Google the sound of your voice if it isn’t normally recognizing your voice when you say “Ok Google.” Then, from Delete voice model you may also remove what you’ve taught to Google to recognize your voice.
Or simply have fun with all sorts of commands. You can ask it: “Show my Google search history”, “Adjust my Google security settings” or “Open Google Account settings” if you’re all into account, privacy and search. Or get directions when traveling: “Where’s the closest coffee shop?”, “Show me my flights” or “What are some attractions in X City?”. These are just some examples of what you can ask it, of course.
Your Pixel 3 being able to respond to voice commands is great, don’t you think? What’s less great is that you don’t know that there is a way to facilitate that convenience. On your smartphone, you can also squeeze your phone to talk to the Google Assistant. Just try it out.
