Google Assistant will soon be able to recognize your voice better
Google will soon improve its Assistant application to better help it recognize your requests. For this, the Mountain View firm will guide her in her learning by storing your voice on your phone. The goal is to make the interaction between AI and humans much more natural.
Will Google Assistant be even more accurate when it comes to recognizing your requests? In any case, this is what the source code of the APK dissected by 9to5Google suggests. According to the site, Google will store your data on your smartphone to make the AI even more accurate.
This feature appears in the source code under the heading “Personalized speech recognition” (Personalized voice recognition). It should therefore arrive for everyone in the coming months, at least for users who use the Assistant in English.
Google Assistant wants to be more precise in requests
This feature should probably be enabled manually. Indeed, it involves storing your data, and therefore your voice, on your smartphone. The goal is to use this data to to help Assistant to recognize certain vocal habits, like the pronunciation of names and words you say often. Clearly, the more you pronounce a proper name, the more the application will be able to recognize it, regardless of the intonation.
Of course, you will have to accept that your voice data is stored on your phone. Google promises that if you turn the feature on and then off, all information saved in the meantime will simply be erased. The question of the protection of personal data is thorny and the Mountain View firm does not want to take any risk on this subject. We are talking about smartphones here, but the thing could extend to all compatible terminals.
Google Assistant: some voice commands now work without “Ok Google”
Assistant has always been one of Google’s flagship apps and the company wants to continue building on it in the future. It recently announced that it is working to make interactions more natural, for example by recognizing user hesitations. Some improvements are more visible. For example, the Nest Hub Max no longer requires saying “OK Google” before each request, since you just have to look at the screen to activate it. It is this kind of interaction that Google seeks to impose to all these products: more natural, less forced. Of course, all this did not concern the French version of the application… at least not for the moment.
