Over the past couple of years, Google has made some significant improvements to how privacy is handled with its services with options like auto-delete and more. Now, a handy new command has been discovered for Google Assistant that can delete accidental commands.
Spotted by the folks over at Droid-Life, there’s a handy option for deleting the last thing Assistant heard. If you say “Hey Google, that wasn’t for you,” Google will quickly delete the last command it heard and stored.
I can’t imagine this command would be useful at all times, but if you noticed that the Assistant on your Google Home or smartphone went off by mistake, this is a useful tool for deleting those accidental commands on the fly.
If you’ll recall earlier this year, Google added some similar commands to Assistant for deleting history. Those commands can delete a day or up to a week’s worth of your Assistant activity whenever you’d like. They include:
- “Hey Google, delete my last conversation.”
- “Hey Google, delete today’s activity.”
- “Hey Google, delete this week’s activity.”
