Google Assistant To Add a Guest Mode For Featuring Private Voice Searches

Soon, Google Assistant will be adding a ‘Guest’ mode to facilitate the featuring of private voice searches. When the ‘Guest’ mode is on, any interaction you have with your Google Assistant will not get saved on your Google account. 

The objective of the new ‘Guest’ mode feature is to provide users with more control over their data. Many times a user might not want to save his or her interactions with the Google Assistant; this is precisely what the new feature will help a user with. 

When the Guest mode is not on, a user gets to switch back to complete personalised Google Assistant experience. Users can also delete an interaction they have had with the Google Assistant by using their voice; this feature was enabled by Google last year.

This new feature will be optional; it can be turned on at any point in time. Nevertheless, after switching on the ‘Guest’ mode, you will not get a personalised answer as it will be functioning independently; it will not be connected to your account data.

Also, Google intends to launch a revised critical alert system in addition to a new way of delivering it. Upon detection of a grave Google Account-related security issue, it’ll display an alert automatically on the Google app for a user and help him or her to address it. Google has also mentioned that these alerts are spoof resistant.

The revised critical alert is going to appear regardless of whether the Google app is being used at the time. Google plans to release this feature via a limited rollout in the forthcoming weeks and via an expanded rollout in the next year. Presently, Google notifies users via emails regarding potential risks related to their accounts.
