How to set “Hey Google” sensitivity in Google Home?


How to change the “Hey/OK Google” sensitivity in the Google Home app? Changing your Google Assistant-powered device’s voice sensitivity requires the latest Google Home app update. The update is gradually rolling out, so only some users may have it in their Google Home app right now. You can check for pending updates on the Google Play Store for Android devices, or on the Apple App Store for iOS users.

Here’s how to adjust the “Hey/OK Google” sensitivity in Google Home once you have to update installed:

  1. Open the Google Home app.
  2. Tap the device you wish to edit (or use this guide to connect a new device).
  3. Tap the Settings icon, then go to Device Settings > “Hey/OK Google sensitivity.”
  4. Drag the slider to your desired level of sensitivity. Higher sensitivity will make the device more likely to hear your voice.
  5. Back out and repeat for any other devices you wish to edit.
