Given that Google Meet Hardware is aware that you are in a meeting, it will disable the command
Hot words or commands on voice assistants are helpful when you need them but frustrating when they activate by accident. Maybe having a meeting booked is a useful cue for Google to disable a hot word?
The “Hey, Google” buzzword will be disabled during meetings and 10 minutes prior with a new feature that Google is introducing for Google Meet Hardware. We hope this enhancement helps avoid any unexpected disruptions during your calls. According to Google, “We’ve learned from our users that due to the increase in teams switching to hybrid meetings, the “Hey, Google” control sometimes mistakenly be triggered during meetings.”
Only “Google Meet Hardware”—custom Internet equipment designed exclusively to do room-scale Google Meet video conferences and incorporate speakers, microphones, cameras, and smart displays—can disable “Hey, Google” commands across all of your devices at this time. They are primarily intended for use in conference rooms for businesses, where a single device may link the entire table to a video chat.
Given that Google Meet Hardware is currently in charge of running the meeting, it would be very disruptive if the “Hey, Google” hot word went off on it. It would be a major disruption to have the Google Assistant appear during your meeting and possibly silence the speakers as it waits for a command.
The end user toggle has been taken out to guarantee that the hardware device is in the anticipated default state for future use because “Hey Google” will only be enabled when there is an imminent meeting.
Although it is unknown if this will be supported by the plethora of other Google devices that 1) are aware of your meeting and 2) have hot word support, the Google Meet Hardware seems like a nice place to start.
Google Meet hardware is a video conferencing solution which includes the speakermic, camera, touchscreen, and Chromebox for large or standard-sized rooms. To manage rooms and devices and to attach a calendar to a device, use the Google Admin console for setup options. Users in your company can quickly book and join meetings using Google Calendar after you set up and enroll your device.
The ‘Hey Google’ voice command is now supported by a growing number of devices, including the forthcoming Series One Desk 27 and the Logitech Rally Bar Mini.
Users of Google Workspace, G Suite subscribers, and owners of compatible Google Meet gear whose auto-update expiration date hasn’t yet passed are all qualified for the upgrade. It could take up to two weeks for all users to receive it because it is being gradually rolled out to both the Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains.
