Have you ever been in a situation where you need some information from your phone but your hands are wet or you just don’t feel like picking up your phone? Well, with Google Assistant, you can get the information you need even without touching your phone. In this post, we will show you how to use your Google Assistant from your lock screen or when your phone’s screen is off.
To get started, swipe up from your home screen and look for your Google app. If you don’t have it, download it from the Play Store. Once you have the app, open it and tap on “More” at the bottom. From there, click on “Settings” and then “Voice.” Next, tap on “Voice Match” and make sure it is turned on. Once it’s turned on, you can access your assistant anytime, even if your screen is off or you’re using your favorite app.
Now, you can ask your Google Assistant for basic information like the weather or the score of a game. For example, you can say, “Hey, what’s the weather?” or “Hey, what was the score of the Philadelphia Phillies game?” and the assistant will give you the information you need.
However, there are some things that your assistant won’t be able to do, like turning off your lights if you have smart lights. If you want to do something personal like that, you’ll have to unlock your device first.
It’s important to note that this feature is only available for Android devices. If you have an iPhone, unfortunately, you won’t be able to use it.
In conclusion, Google Assistant can be a great tool for getting information without touching your phone. With the steps outlined above, you can easily set up your assistant to work from your lock screen or when your phone’s screen is off. So, go ahead and give it a try!
