I presume google assistant will turn off on your phone when in ps2?

Did i notice a button on steering wheel to activate instead of saying, ok google?

I hope it uses the same logic as Google Home does - both your phone and the Home detect the "Hey Google" and listen to you, but somehow the Home takes priority and is the only one that responds.

I don't have always listening turned on on my phone. If I need it it's one press away. Saves battery life too :cool:

Only problem will be trying not to use it when my son is around.
Otherwise he'll figure out what to do and be asking for all his music the whole trip! 😂

I have the same problem. Today my daughter will try to change the station on the dash, and I change it back with the steering wheel buttons. In the Polestar we'll just have a shouting match :ROFLMAO:

Maybe the Polestar 3 will have ejector seats for that situation :D

On a more serious note, on other devices with Google Assistant you can set up Voice Match, so it only responds to your voice. I wonder if you can do that in Android Automotive...

I test drove a Polestar 2 yesterday and had exactly this problem: every time I said 'OK Google' to talk to the car, my android phone (Google Pixel) responded, usually with a different response to the car, so it was a bit chaotic.

Anybody know whether there will be some way to let my phone know that Polestar should take priority when I say "OK Google" in the car?

First world problems 🙂 I just want my car not to have any drive train issues. I'll deal with google.

A familiar problem at home with the multiple Google Homes I have. Thankfully the button on the steering wheel solves the issue.

I've not had this issue with my pixel 3 xl, but my partner's Samsung has. I just assumed Google had some magic...but thinking about it, when connected via Bluetooth the phone should know to not be taking input from its mic

Ever found "Miss Google" on a bit of a trip? I tried to get BBC Radio Scotland on D.A.B. via Google Assistant today and was educated with "Dabbing involves inhaling the vapors from concentrated marijuana extracts....." (it is the first explanation on Google search for dab.......)
PS have NEVER managed to get that "national" station on any way other than manually.

New issue with latest update:

I can not log into Google Assistant. I do have 2 factor authentication and confirmed on my other device. But fails every time. When I dug a little deeper it says no password protection on screen in my Google account page.

This is to give assistant personal info to be able to send text messages.

I can log into Google for maps in the car.

Any advice?

Thanks

Has anyone tried creating a google assistant routine in/for the P*2? I'd like to be able to open/close the garage door using the touch screen (no more Homelink on MY 2022).

I know I can control my home thermostats via "hey google" in the car, so the connection is possible. I think this link is via my google account being logged into in the car.

Pretty sure the car's assistant will connect to Google-aware devices just fine. What I'm interested in is being able to use my finger on the screen to trigger a "routine". Does the car allow that?

That sounds like a different application that would need to be developed that would bring you to a screen with soft buttons to do what you want. And I wouldn't think those buttons would be easily programmable by the user as opposed to the developer. Someone else may have a more in-depth view than I do.

Google does support it, so this can be done on an Android phone. I suspect the car doesn't allow custom soft buttons tho', which is a shame. I guess if arriving home in the middle of a conversation, that will have to be interrupted.

The whole concept of voice controls means you are always interrupting conversations, or even interrupting the music you are listening to. That's one big reason I've never been keen on voice controls. But since cars hardly have any physical buttons anymore, that's all we've got unless you want to look away from the road for an interminable amount of time to find all the sub-menus on a touch screen. :rolleyes:
