With a digital personal assistant, people want to personify their device. Refer to my first sentence. Here is where I go to the bathroom Google. Many software companies will work for an entire year to produce an annual major release. As I mentioned, what seems simple conceptually is actually heavy lifting if you think about it. Alexa sounds so much natural, like a person, an assistant.
This is a much needed option, because it is getting annoying. Wonder how many people buy the far inferior Alexa or use Bixby or Siri or Cortana for that reason alone. My Moto X from Motorola, once owned by Google let's me change the phrase. But for now I am enjoying teaching my little boo-boo how to learn and react how I want to the various commands or requests and she is performing well, can't wait until the updates start improving my little boo, reminds me of the ferbies. There you will see dozens of language options, each one with a checkbox, so you can set primary and secondary languages if desired. This will lead to low usage of the device, and eventual abandonment of it -- something Google has historically been okay with. You even get a free Google home when you upgrade.
I would love to be able to use always listening voice search and commands. This assumes a tracking number is found in your Gmail account. They just don't want to do it. I'd pickup up one of those new Home Minis for every room in the house tomorrow if only I could set my own hot word. Also, what about people with speech impediments or of different accents or language acuity.
If your theory was true then why is the wake word for the Amazon Echo, by default, Alexa? Regrettably I often fall under the unreasonable man bucket. I'm sure the Google team is listening to all the feedback and taking a good deal of it to heart. Again, assuming your flight information is in your Gmail account. I see Google is releasing their answer to the Amazon Dot. The arrival of Google Home had been by The New York Times as well as , which dubbed the device Google Chirp.
As far as I know nobody on this board is privy to any Google roadmap so try not to read anything into this. Your last paragraph again jumps into the realm of intent for which you have not solid evidence, just your speculation. We have a remarkable capacity to develop truly helpful technology yet the industry leaders continually prioritize their companies agenda's, e. I also see social media posts saying the exact same thing. Google manages to do this a lot faster, getting out fix-only updates as fast as once a month and new function releases as frequently as once every six weeks if no critical problems are uncovered. Then you will have something with much better sound, and superior 3rd Party home integration support.
It seems to go against everything google used to stand for. We all know you have the tech to do it. I have to mute the tv when the google commercials come on as well. In a , the search giant said the new extension is ideal for those preparing a Thanksgiving feast this week. Do you have any real evidence that this is not hard to do? Google designed, developed and engineered the Moto X phones inside and out when they owned Motorola. Any specialized signal processors these devices contain are not hard-coded to a specific wake word.

We bought the google device back in November and while I didn't like Alexa's way of thinking, So here's my suggestion, Google the company needs to alter the Opening words used to alert the Google device. Here is where I shop Google. My guess is that they they are quite proud of the fact that their company name has become synonymous with an internet search to the point where it is has melded into our every day use and even in the dictionary. I also see this being a potential when out in public, anyone stranger that want's to accces there google assistant will activate mine also. It should be hands free. You can use your voice to do actions like search, get directions, and create reminders.
I don't want to buy into the Amazon ecosystem, but Google, you are forcing my hand here. I think that answer marked here was just a simple, honest, that can't be done now. I'm certain Google could make it happen in an less than hour if they so desired. It's a down right invasion on a typical homelife for anyone with both family and friends. In theory, changing the name associated with the Home would have implications across the shared devices on assistant. Unlike many posts imply I lack the starry-eyed love for everything Google, or Apple or Samsung or. Yes, Google, please get on this rather quickly as it's becoming a big deal.
