The “OK Google” feature seems too cool and useful to some people. You can use it when you have to search for something or execute a command like creating a calendar event, setting the alarm, calling, etc. on your Android smartphone. However, this command isn’t for everyone, as some people find it strange to talk on their phones. Hence, here, you will find ways to get rid of it.

There are many reasons why you may want to disable the OK Google function from your phone. For example, maybe you have never used it and don’t even want to use it in the future. Or, you have just tried to use it, but it felt silly speaking to your phone. 

Also, some people are not very good in English to use Google Voice commands properly, which is quite understandable. So, no matter what, you may want to disable Google Voice at some point and this post is all about that.

So, without doing any further ado, let’s just talk about disabling Google Voice, and trust me it’s really simple and will not take more than just a couple of seconds.
