“Quick Phrases”, A New Addition to Google Assistant

Quick Phrases will be soon available that"ll help you use the Google Assistant without the trigger word

In an app teardown, 9to5Google came across a new feature, which will reportedly be called “Quick Phrases”. Quick phrases essentially allow you to skip saying Hey Google for every task. Instead, you can just say the phrase assigned in Quick phrases, and the Google Assistant will do the job for you.

This is not the first time that we have come across this feature. A similar feature was introduced back in April. Google is calling these specific phrases “Salsas” and you can add any sentence as a salsa to trigger the Assistant. These will work on the basis of voice match user recognition software. You can take a look at the images below to get a better understanding of this feature.

You can turn on the commands you would like to use and customize them from the available categories. These will not be turned on by default. The categories of these “Quick Phrases” are Recommended, Alarms, Connect, General info, Lights, Media Controls, Timers, To-Dos.

The Google Assistant will also help you reportedly select which devices can these Salsas be triggered on. While this is still under development 9to5Google suggests that this feature will be available on both Speakers and Smart Displays. You could already silence your Alarms or timers by saying “Stop” without the hot word.

With the implementation of “Quick Phrases”, the functionality of Google Assistant will be more advanced as it will eliminate the trigger word for the assistant which makes the overall interaction a lot more natural.
