Google Home assistant sucks

Community Member

I do not know what's happening? but from about 6 months to now the Google assistant on different platforms only does stupid things.


Doesn't respond properly or follow instructions ...I'm about to switch my whole house to Alexa.

I have more than 12 devices at home and I am seeing that Google is falling behind


The theme is worse if it is used in Spanish ... Google is losing ground every day.


Has anyone else noticed how bad Google Assistant is?t in Artificial Intelligence issues

Hello BoscoElGris, 

Thanks for reaching out and I'm sorry for this experience.

Go ahead and maximize the "Hey Google" sensitivity to enhance the detection of your Google Home device. Here's how: open the Google Home app > Tap your speaker or display > At the top right, tap Settings > Audio > "Hey Google" sensitivity. Use the slider to raise or lower the device's sensitivity to make it more or less responsive to "Hey Google".

Let me know if that works.
