Can I stop Google Assistant activating on my phone when it's locked? 0 Recommended Answers 49 Replies 153 Upvotes
I just got a new Galaxy Note 9 and one thing keeps bothering me. I have a Google Home Mini in my office and ask it things like "what's the temperature" every now and then. I always have my phone on my desk in front of me and when I say "Hey Google" or "OK Google" the screen always turns on the lock screen. Is there a way to disabled Google Assistant while my phone's screen is locked and off so that only the Google Home Mini responds? It's getting frustrating having to keep turning the screen off every time I ask my Home a question.
