Google’s privacy-focused ‘guest mode’ is finally available for all of your Assistant-enabled devices.
This function is a simplified version of the wizard without custom results. That means you can ask him questions, but he won’t know who you are. So you can still set timers and ask about the weather, but you can’t get a calendar or commute data.
Google says that you can just say, “Ok Google, turn on guest mode,” and your interactions with the Google Assistant will not be saved to your account. While in guest mode, you can enjoy popular features such as asking questions, controlling smart home devices, setting timers, and playing music. Your device will not show personal results, such as your calendar entries or contacts, until you disable the mode. “
When you enable the feature, your device will chime and if it has a smart display, you will see a small icon on the screen. It should be noted that if you somehow use Maps or YouTube or some other apps that are independent of the Google Assistant experience, then those apps can still track you and use your data.
To complete this update, Google has added a handful of other privacy-focused updates, such as the ability to ask you even more questions related to the topic. This includes things like “Ok Google, tell me about guest mode and” How do you keep my information private? “
