Now, saying "Ok Google" will not unlock your smartphone

Previously, devices were unlocked when recognizing a user's voice. They could simply touch the home button and return to an unlocked home screen.

 




After Google recently eliminated the ability for "Voice Match" to act as a password on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, the company announced that it would do the same on all Android devices. As the feature is implemented, instead of unlocking your device, "Voice Match" recognition will now only provide access to Google Assistant.

Google Assistant can provide personal results such as emails, calendar entries, contacts, reminders, memory aids, and shopping lists.

Limited access to the wizard interface will be indicated to users with a lock icon at the top of the screen. To unlock the device, users will need to access their lock screens and unlock it via their access code or biometric code.

In the past, devices were unlocked when a user's voice was recognized. They could simply touch the home button and return to an unlocked home screen. Now, when you navigate to Google Assistant settings > Assistant tab > Assistant devices list > Phone, instead of displaying the "Unlock with voice match" button, you will receive a personal results tab on the screen. locking.
