Google Home and Pixel Slate respond to "OK Google"

If you’re near your Google Home device and Pixel Slate (or any device with Google Assistant enabled), only Google Home should respond to "Ok Google." If your Pixel Slate also responds, here’s how you can try fixing the issue.

Step 1: Add the same account to both devices

If you have multiple Google Accounts, add the account you used to set up Google Home to your Chrome OS device. Note: If the device that's responding isn't yours, then these steps won’t fix the issue.

Step 1: See which account you use on Google Home

Follow these instructions, then come back to this page.

Step 2: Add the account to your Chrome OS device
  1. If you’re signed in to your device, sign out by selecting the time in the lower right corner and then Sign out.
  2. At the bottom of your screen, select Add person.
  3. Follow the steps to add your account. After you add the account, you don’t need to stay signed in

Step 2: How to use "Ok Google"
