Google Assistant is one of the best voice-based digital assistants you can have on your phone right now irrespective of whether you’re using Android or iOS. While it’s not yet available out-of-the-box on most smartphones, you can get it enabled on practically any Android device with a few little tweaks. However, in case you’re not really fond of it and have been wondering how you can completely disable it on your handset, here’s how you can do so in a few little steps:

Disable Google Assistant on Any Android Device

  • Say the “Ok Google” keyword or long press the Home button on your Android device to launch Google Assistant, then tap the little icon in the top right corner of the Assistant screen. In the full-screen window that comes up, tap on the three dots in the upper right corner

  • Choose “Settings”, and from the list of all your devices, select the phone you want to disable Google Assistant on.

  • Once your pick your device, you’ll find a toggle to switch Google Assistant on or off. Just switch it off and you’re good to go. Congratulations, mission accomplished. Google Assistant is now disabled on your phone.

  • In case you have a change of heart and want to switch it back on at some stage, you can do so by simply long pressing the Home button and tapping on ‘Turn On’ from the resultant screen as shown below, and Google Assistant will be back on your device just like that.

Disable Google Assistant on Any Android Device

While Google Assistant is a great personal assistant to have, it can admittedly get a little annoying at times, so it’s completely understandable that you might want to take a break from it once in a while. Now that you know how to disable and re-enable it, just go ahead and try it on your device and tell us exactly what it is about Google Assistant that annoys you, because we’d love to get your perspective on this.

  1. NONE of these steps work on my Droid Maxx. I need to turn it off since I’m getting spammed with LGBTQ crap from the google assistant. If i can’t figure out how to stop that garbage I’m gonna flush this POS down the toilet and go get an Iphone. It’s absolutely ridiculous to be ramming this BS down the throat of all android users (including children)

  2. The problem I’m facing is that whenever I use my earphones Google assistant just keeps sending me notifications to turn it on. Without the earphones it doesn’t bother me. But when I use them, it starts to really irritate me. Is there anything I can do to make it stop from doing that?
