Customisable wake word/phrase needed for google smart speakers

Community Member

Fed up to death with saying ‘ hey google’ to wake my google mini……I would dearly love to be able to set a name or phrase of my choosing,I would also like to be able to programme it to reply to me by name or nickname.

Eg. “ Hey Kylie “ …….. ” How can I help Dave”.

This would make the whole experience more natural, more pleasant and more appealing.
