Samsung’s software update team seem to be ready to play their role as leaders in the market. They have already released two upgrades for Galaxy Note 8 within a week and looking forward to release a second update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in some zones. The update includes new security patch for June 2018, increased device stability and user-friendly ‘Hey-Google’ feature.
The latest Galaxy S9 update has added new attraction for waking up Google Assistant by saying ‘Hey Google’. The app already recognizes and acts up on ‘Ok Google’ voice command since its inception. Now it decided to be less formal for smart phone users who like to use this hot word. Initially this phrase ‘Hey Google’ was introduced in Google Home smart speaker but now Google has brought this to Android smart phones by the end of last year. Users of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+can also wakeup the Google Assistant app by saying ‘Hey Google’.
To able to use this feature in your smart phone, all you have to do is to add your voice to Google app again. To go through the process, open the Google app on your phone, tap the icon at the right bottom side of your screen, then tap settings > Voice > Voice Match. Then tap ‘Return voice model’. The app will ask you to say ‘Ok Google’ and ‘Hey Google’ few times to register your voice. Once your voice is registered in Google app, you will be able to wake up the app by saying either of the commands.
If you are user of Galaxy S9 or S9+, you have to update the software from ‘Software update menu’ to use this feature. The update is not available in all countries yet, so be patient if it doesn’t start immediately. The firmware version for the updated software is G960FXXU1BRF8 for Galaxy s9 and G965FXXU1BRF8 for the Galaxy S9+.
