Google home implements device sensitivity


Tired of all your devices responding at once after saying the wake phrase? Google has implemented a new feature to help differentiate which devices in your home are most likely to respond.

Google has begun to roll out a feature to adjust the sensitivity of each device in your home to the wake phrase. This is useful both in noisy environments and in cases where multiple google devices are in the home, and you prefer for one to be more likely to respond.

The feature first began rolling out in late April, and should be available to most devices in the United States by this point.

The setting can be adjusted by ensuring that your google home iOS or Android app is up to date, clicking on the name of your device, going to settings, device settings, hey/okay google sensitivity, adjust the slider to your desired sensitivity (the higher the slider, the more sensitive your device), then back out and repeat for any other devices you wish to edit.

This is a much needed feature that should hopefully cut down on both unintended Google device responses and having to yell at your devices.

Have you tried this feature? How well does it work? Please let us know in the comments.
