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.

Easy enough to use the button on the steering wheel, no?

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
