HOW TO CREATE DIRECT ACCESSES
We carry out this procedure with a cell phone that has the Android operating system. First you have to go to the “Google” application, press the “More” tab, then go to “Settings” or “Settings” and go to “Google Assistant”.
In this section we will have to open the “Voice Match” tab and verify that “Hey Google” is activated and configured to recognize our voice. We return to the Google Assistant and enter “Direct Access”.
In this window you will find the option “Discover” where you can add the applications as a shortcut by clicking on the plus (+). Ready, you just have to say “Hey Google” and mention the word you saved to open each application. These words can be modified in the “Shortcuts” tab by clicking on the pencil to edit them.
Editing allows you to change the voice command to another phrase that seems more natural or easy to remember. For example, the command to send an email with Gmail is “Hey Google, write” but with its editor you can change it to “Hey Google, send mail”.
