You are in your office and decide to find out when your next appointment is. You pick up your phone and mutter softly: "OK Google, when is my next appointment?" 3rd at 9 o'clock. & # 39;
You no longer have to hide under your desk. Google has now made it possible to mute all speech output from Google Assistant and only show the answers to your questions on your phone. Here's how to set it up:
- Open your Google Assistant by long pressing the start button or by saying "Hey, Google" or "OK Google".
- Tap the symbol in the lower right corner.
- Tap your personal icon in the top right corner.
- Select "Settings".
- Select "Assistant" (on the top line).
- Scroll down to & # 39; Assistant devices & # 39; and search for the word & # 39; Phone & # 39; or the name that you have assigned to your telephone. Tap it.
- Scroll down to & # 39; Speech and speech & # 39; and tap & # 39; Voice output & # 39 ;.
- Select "Hands-free only."
And you're done! From here you can type or make your requests to Google Assistant and it will silently offer you all the help it can offer.
