Play a game with the Google Assistant

You can ask your Google Assistant to play a game on any Assistant-supported device.

Important: Your microphone may stay open for parts of a game to listen for specific gameplay words or phrases. Your Assistant device says, “Just so you know, the mic will stay open for this part of the game. You can stop or pause it at any time". To stop or pause your mic say:

  • Cancel
  • Stop
  • Quit
  • Exit
  • Pause

To confirm if your Assistant is listening, at the top left of your screen, find the listening bubble. An expanded bubble means that your microphone is turned on.

  • Say “Hey Google, cancel”, "Hey Google, exit” or “Hey Google, stop”.
