Google Assistant can be soon summoned using the power button on Android smartphones. Currently, it can be triggered using wake words like “Ok Google” and “Hey Google” or swipe gestures on smartphones.

Reports suggest that Google could soon add a power button trigger for Google Assistant with the launch of Android 12. In the codes of the Google App latest release, the mention of the new feature was found.

XDA-Developers first spotted the upcoming feature for Google Assistant. They conducted a teardown of the latest Google App release (12.18.6.29) that revealed a string of codes that suggest Google may add the power button trigger in Android 12.

The feature can be enabled in settings. This new setting was spot on a Pixel 3XL smartphone running on a developer build of Android 12.

As of now, Google Assistant can be summoned using two commands- ‘Ok Google’ or ‘Hey Google.’ Companies like Nokia and LG have a dedicated button for Google Assistant.
