Through Twitter, Google recently announced a new change in one of the commands of the Google Assistant. Now users can stop smart devices with simple command “stop”without having to say “Ok Google” first.
Google has been changing a few quick phrases (Quick Phrases) since last year for its assistant, with the aim of facilitating communication between the user and the technology. Before announcing the new command that makes your assistant “quiet”, the company had already launched the function to answer calls easily, where users just have to say “answer”.

With no need to say the hotword “Ok Google” beforehand, users only need to say the word “stop” to stop playing a song or video, for example. The tool is also a useful shortcut when a requested search is too long, so when the voice assistant is reading too much text, the user can instantly stop it.
“Useful alert on new Google Assistant feature! Want your smart display or speaker to stop talking? Just say ‘stop’ – no #OkGoogle required,” the company posted on Twitter.
The new command is rolling out now and requires smart appliances and the Google smartphone app to be updated to the latest version to work.
