Please allow us to use a custom wakeup name

It would be really cool if we could use a custom wake word instead of " Hey Google".  That way, we can play Star Trek ("Hey Computer"), or Iron Man ("Hey Jarvis" or "Hey Friday").

Thanks!

This is a very common request.

Be sure to leave feedback.  You can just say " ok Google, leave feedback".

Hope that helps!

Hello kingjohn,

 

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, I have no control of when feature requests will be implemented, that's why we suggest sending them in via feedback. The team reviews all comments and suggestions. 

 

I was saying we're to help because I am here trying my best to help answer questions and want to help everyone. Sorry I could not resolve your issue.

Nope, but I would love to have an idea when this feature may be implemented.   I can't be the first person to request this.

 

Will this ever be implemented,  or is this a no-go from Marketing, who wants people to say "Hey Google" forever?

Hello Tekkromancer,

 

Thank you for your reply back. I understand your concern, this is why we suggest that users send in feedback so that our team can see what feature requests are wanted.

 

As there are no other questions, I will go ahead and lock this thread. Have a nice day.
