Google Assistant offers a new "Stop" command

Google announced yesterday on Twitter an interesting feature allowing you to stop your assistant without having to pronounce the eternal “OK Google”.

Just say stop to Google Assistant

It was in a simple tweet that the Mountain View firm yesterday informed users of Google Home of the possibility of stop Google Assistant speech flow by simply saying "Stop". Usually, you had to go through one “Ok Google, stop” or “Hey Google, stop” to ask the assistant to stop.

Concretely, the voice assistant now monitors, in addition to its classic wake-up words, if you pronounce the word "Stop" during his speech. Rest assured, this does not mean that the device listens to everything you say, only that it is looking for this precise word.

Like the Quick Phrases already introduced, which allow you to start conversations on Google Home speakers without saying a wake word, or the conversation modeAlexa, these little new features are intended to streamline the exchanges we have with our voice assistants. Very good news then… For users of Google Assistant in English only, for the moment, since, as almost always, you will have to wait a few more months or even years to hope for it in the language of Molière.
