On tapping on the new Lock Screen Menu for the first time, users are greeted with a splash screen that talks about the feature in length. “Get hands-free help from your Assistant when your phone is locked. You can always turn this off in your Assistant settings...For help with personal info, like calling and messaging your contacts, turn on Voice Match and say “Hey Google” so your Assistant can recognize your voice,” says the text in the splash screen.

At this point, users can either tap on ‘No, thanks’ option to exit the setting or ‘Yes, I’m In’ button to get to the settings. Tapping on the ‘Yes, I’m In’ button takes users to the Lock Screen settings that has two toggle buttons. The first toggle button allows the Google Assistant to answer users’ requests even when their phones are locked. All users need to do is say ‘Hey Google’ followed by their request. The other toggle button enables Google Assistant to give users personalised requests even when they hadn’t used the ‘Hey Google’ hotword.
