Google Speaker Issues

Community Member

Although Google provide a solution allowing only my speaker to respond when I say Hey Google by recognising if I'm at home or not and defaulting to one or the other assistant, this is really quite a poor fix as I sometimes want to use my phone assistant rather than my speaker. Likewise it doesn't address the issue of other family members accidentally activating both, as the fix offered only works on one device. It would be a far better and simpler solution to change the voice activated command on the speakers to "hey speaker" or "hey nest" or something, or even to allow people to assign their own names for their devices ("Hey Alfred") so that the phone and the speaker can be addressed individually by anyone without crossover.
