If you’re tired of hearing “OK Google” when you don’t want to, the good news is that you can disable Assistant completely. The Ultimate Guide to Turning Off Google Assistant Read on for the steps to turn off Google Assistant on your phone or other devices.

How to disable assistant on your phone

  • Swipe up on your phone to open the app drawer.
  • Tap the Google app.
  • Tap the three-dot menu button in the top right corner of your screen, then select Settings from the list of options that appears.
  • Under “Google Assistant,” tap Turn Off to disable it completely or tap Settings and adjust settings like “Okay Google” detection and voice activity history (if you want to keep these features).

How to turn off Google Assistant in the Google app

  • Go to your app drawer and open the Google app.
  • Tap on the settings icon, which looks like a gear or cog. (If you don’t see this option, tap More at the bottom of your screen.)
  • Scroll down until you find “Google Assistant” and tap on it to on your phone completely–not just within specific apps or services like Maps or YouTube but everywhere it’s active in Android Pie 9+ phones that have received an update from Google Play Services v11+.

How to turn off Google Assistant in Chrome

Open Chrome and click on the three dots in the top right corner. Click Settings and then Privacy. Under “Content settings,” select Manage your Google Assistant data.

How to turn off Google Assistant on your TV or other devices

  • Open the Google Home app.
  • Select the device that you want to turn off.
  • In the top left corner of the screen, tap Settings > More settings > Assistant settings > Turn off.

You can turn off Google Assistant access from almost any device.

  • On your Android phone or tablet: Open your app drawer, then tap Settings > Google Assistant. Tap the switch next to “Ok Google” or “Hey Google” (depending on your device). If you don’t see these options, it means the feature hasn’t been turned on yet–you’ll need to go through some additional steps before disabling it.

Open the settings for Google Assistant.

  • In the list of services, find “Google Home” and tap on it.
  • To disable your phone’s ability to listen for the “Ok Google” command, tap the toggle switch next to “Google Search.” This will turn off all voice search features on your device. If you want to use voice commands with other apps or features (like Maps), leave this setting enabled but disable everything else in this section by tapping on each item until there’s a red circle around it and tapping again until there are no more red circles surrounding any items remaining in this section

Tap on “Services”

  • Tap on the Google Assistant icon.
  • Tap on the three vertical dots in the top right corner.
  • Tap “Services.” This will open up a list of services that can be turned off or changed, including Google Assistant, Home control and more!
  • Scroll down until you see “Google Assistant” and tap it to open its settings page.

You’ll now see an option called “Turn Off.” Tap this to shut off access to your phone’s microphone, so it doesn’t listen for voice commands even when no one is talking (or if they’re not saying anything). You can also choose whether or not you want notifications when someone says ‘Hey Google’ while using their own device with this feature enabled; if there are multiple devices connected together using Cast technology (such as Chromecast), then only those devices will hear these notifications instead of all devices connected via Wi-Fi network. Finally–and most importantly–there’s an option called “Done,” which saves your new settings so that nothing changes until next time someone turns them back on again!

Turn off Google Assistant and tap “Done”

  • Open the Google app and tap the menu icon in the top left corner.
  • Tap Settings > Personal info & privacy > Disable “OK Google” detection or turn off Voice Match (if you use this feature).
  • Once you’re done, tap “Done” at the bottom of your screen to save your changes.

You can from your phone settings

To turn off Google Assistant, you can do so from your phone settings.

  • On Android: Go to Settings > Apps & Notifications > Google App (or other apps with access to the “OK Google” command).

You’ll see a list of apps that have access to your device’s microphone. To disable it for one app or all apps, tap on the toggle switch next to each entry and choose either On or Off. If you want more fine-grained control over which services have access, check out our guide on how to manage these permissions from within individual apps themselves.*

There’s a lot to love about Google Assistant, but there are also some things that can be frustrating. We hope this guide helped you learn how to and get back some of your privacy. If there are any other tips or tricks that we didn’t cover here, please let us know in the comments!
