"Hey Google" this is going to be trouble

Community Member

Come on Google, it was fun for a while now it is just old. I was having dinner with some friends at home the other night and decided to demonstrate my new Google Nest Max. Just after saying "Hey Google" I realized I had unfolded a hilarious tv skit with every phone in the house responding. When can we select our own wake phrase? and stop this nonsense. Can you imagine a movie theatre where some wag of a kid waits for the exact moment in a movie to yell out "Hey Google" and several hundred phones respond at the same time.

This has been an ongoing request from users but Google seems happy with their choice. 😎

Hey Dougie56,


Thanks for posting. I appreciate JillG's help here. I can confirm that customizing wake words for the Google Home and Nest speakers or displays is not supported. We're always looking for ways to improve; we'll take this as feedback. You can also send feedback using your device by saying, "Hey Google, send feedback." Visit this link for more steps.


Let us know if you have additional concerns about your device, otherwise, I'll close the thread after 24 hours.
