[Update: Rolling Out] Google App Hints at “Hey Google” Hotword Coming to Google Assistant on Phones.

The Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL were officially announced just 10 days ago, and while they are just yet to reach the hands of consumers they a being showcased at Verizon Wireless stores throughout the United States.

We’ve been digging into the Pixel 2’s system applications to bring you the latest Pixel Launcher and Google Camera App, but we’ve also been looking for more hidden aspects such as the dark quick settings theme and evidence for Bluetooth battery level reporting.

Most of the Google apps pre-installed on the Pixel 2 aren’t new with one notable exception—the Google App. Version 7.3.28.21 of the Google App can only be found on the Pixel 2/Pixel 2 XL and it hints at “Hey Google” hotword detection coming to Google Assistant on phones.

“Hey Google” Hotword Detection coming to Google Assistant

  • Currently, there is only one hotword that can trigger Google Assistants on smartphones. You have to say “Ok Google” to make the UI Assistant start listening. Many of you may have grown accustomed to this hotword, but for many of us who own a Google Home device, there’s another way to activate the Assistant. The other hotword that is only available on Google Home devices is “Hey Google.” Personally, I think this hotword rolls off the tongue far more natural and so I exclusively say “Hey Google” to wake my Google Home.

As you can see, the app advertises that Assistant can recognize your voice when you say one of two hotwords. Those two hotwords are elaborated in the next few lines: “Ok Google” or “Hey Google.”
