How to enable Google Assistant Continued Conversation

It used to be difficult for the Google Assistant to follow up on questions when asked more than once about the same subject. It is now a thing of the past.

The feature known as Continued Conversation, is described as a much more efficient way of using Google Assistant. Once enabled, the user can continue talking to the Google Assistant without having to wake it up every time. So, if they want to ask follow-up questions or converse with the virtual assistant, they simply enable it.

According to Google, Say “Hey Google, what’s the weather like today?” After your Assistant shares today’s weather, you can ask “And what about tomorrow?” and get the forecast.

To use it, the user must have an Android phone running at least Version 9 of the operating system. Then, in Settings, locate and tap Apps, and finally, tap Assistant from the resulting page. The user should then scroll to the bottom of the Assistant page and slide the ON/OFF slider for Continued Conversation to the ON position.

With the feature enabled, the user can interact with Google Assistant in a more conversational manner. The user only needs to say “Hey, Google” once before asking the questions.
