The Google assistant could get two new ways to be activated with Android 12. One possibility would be to hold down the power button on the Android phone, according to a report from PhoneArena. The report claims that according to the code in the latest version of the Google App, the company has already started to implement the feature This should bring up the virtual assistant after a long press on the power button. According to the report, “serious work” has already begun on the feature and it is highly likely that it will be released in the coming months.
The other feature that is supposedly in the works is a double tap back gesture designed to activate the Google Assistant, according to a report from XDA developers. However, this function is to be introduced later than the on / off switch and after the Android 12 start.
Some of the Android phones have a dedicated button for the Google Assistant. Google can eliminate that need for an extra button with the help of the trigger function on the power button. The easy way to get into the wizard now is to long press the home button. With these two features, Google is increasing the number of ways you can access the virtual assistant as they roll out. The tech giant seems to want Android phone users to use the Google Assistant more and make it popular. Some of the other features that you can expect with Android 12 are an Extra Dim Dark mode, an improved notification list, and many other user interface improvements.
