Google Assistant recognises general voices, but it has lacked a personalised touch, which may change with the new additions.
Google Assistant is widely available in the market, and it can be accessed via smartphones and smart speakers.However, Google has been unable to personalise it, so the Assistant can only respond to your voice.
According to a new report, this is about to change.
Google Assistant will soon be able to recognise your voice, as the company decides to use personalised speech recognition to provide accurate results.According to 9to5Google, Google Assistant will then recognise your “frequent words and names.”
Google is introducing speech recognition as part of the Google Assistant settings, which can be accessed via the app.However, in order for the personalisation to work, Google will ask users to share their audio recordings, which will need to be stored on the device for the best results.
According to the report, the feature’s description reads, “Store audio recordings on this device to help Google Assistant get better at recognising what you say.”The audio remains on the device and can be deleted at any time by disabling personalised speech recognition.”
To use the Assistant on any device, you must currently use the wake work “Hey Google.”
Adding a personal touch will also allow users to call specific contacts on their phone, which will be accessible only through your voice.All of these additions could help Google Assistant become smarter and expand Google’s machine learning base through these devices.
Because the Assistant must save recordings, Google wants to make sure that users can disable the personalised speech recognition feature in the settings.
Google did not discuss this new feature at the I/O 2022 conference earlier this month, so it could be implemented at a later date.The new Nest speakers could be announced alongside the Pixel 7 phones in October, which is likely when we’ll hear about these Assistant features.
