Presence Sensing Notifications

I am sure this is easy and something I am just overlooking. I was confident Google search would give me the answer.  Nope (or not yet!).  I want to disable the notification I get on Android when Presence Sensing detects I am now home or away without disabling other Google Home notifications.  It was interesting at first to know when that occurs to get a better understanding of how it works.  Now, I don't really need the notification and obviously I know when I am home or not.

I ended up solving this using Android notification settings rather than within Google Home.  When I received a Presence Sensing notification I swiped the notification bar down, found the notification, short swiped left, then clicked on settings icon.  I was able to silence the notification or turn it off altogether.  Hooray!

Hey there, 

I understand that you're wanting to change some settings in regards to notifications and am happy to help as I understand you no longer need them. 

 

I would suggest reviewing this article about Presence Sensing, as well as this article about how to change and manage your notifications. 


Please let me know if you have any other questions. 

Best regards, 

Garrett DS

Thanks Garrett for the reply. I am not sure I see a solution in that documentation. I had already gone through it and don't see an option to disable just presence sensing notifications.  I hope I am missing something.

In Notifications settings I can set the following.  Which turns off Presence Sensing Notifications?

General Notifications

  • People and devices
  • Product updates
  • Account updates
  • Assistant
  • Calls and messages
  • Critical Alerts
