The benefits of activating Ok Google, what is a voice assistant?
If you don't know what we mean & # 39; Google & # 39;, and you're not familiar with the concept of the magic word in the voice recognition system, we have to start from scratch.
The magic word is the name or sequence of words that automatically activates any voice recognition program, and in this case Ok Google uses a smart assistant integrated with all Android phones, and that will allow us to search or perform tasks simply by talking on our smartphone.
Didn't you know your phone has Google Assistant integrated? Yes, it does, unless you use the Android version below 5.0 Lollipop, when Ok Google certainly doesn't work … Bless the partition!
The assistant can be held by holding down the center navigation button, but if we want that communicates with the phone in complete hands-free mode, we must use Ok Google in the corresponding application settings.
Google Assistant She still speaks Spanish and Ok Google works perfectly in our language, once activated it will suffice pronounce the command & # 39; Ok Google & # 39; and our phone will answer ready to answer any question, even to understand colloquial language.
How to work on & # 39; Ok Google & # 39; start wizards on your Android
Having Ok Google in Spanish and its instructions is the first thing to do go to the Play Store and download the latest version of the app "Google". Once you install it you have to update it, something that will be easier for you from the app store.

There, you can find language options to configure Spanish, if the program doesn't recognize you automatically, and most of all option "Voice" which is our favorite And where will we play?
To enter that option you will see the language selected for voice search above, where you also select Spanish if it wasn't, and then by selecting a click "Voice Matching" You will go to a menu where you can work to activate Ok Google Following is a simple lesson.
In that submenu you will see the option that enables the Ok Google command to work with the device on and off, or there's another option just below that will allow us to even unlock the phone without touching it, and perform tasks by saying "Ok Google" and placing instructions on the assistant.

Activate Ok Google offline And the easiest way to do it is to go back to the Google App settings, by clicking the option again "Voice" and then to the submenu Offline voice recognition ". A window will open where we can see the downloaded languages and where We will be given the option to download multiple packages, including Spanish, weighing 25 pounds megabytes.
Without this package Ok Google is not working in Spanish without an Internet connection, so knowing that 25 MB is not something that memories of the current smartphone can't support, and that and such a juicy option that eliminates data connection dependency, it is important to install it to talk about our smartphone and comment & # 39; Ok Google & # 39; on the instructions we want wherever we are.
