What is Google Assistant Continued Conversation and how do you enable it?

Google Assistant


Have you ever asked the Google Assistant a question and then immediately wanted to ask the next question only to have to start over? For example, it might look like this:

  1. Hey, Google, who does Miles Turner play for?
  2. Hey, Google, how tall is Miles Turner?
  3. Hey, Google, how old is Miles Turner?

It works well. However, what if you wanted it to be more conversational, like this:

  1. Hey, Google, who does Miles Turner play for?
  2. How tall is he?
  3. How old is he?

It’s a significantly more effective method of using Google Assistant. The feature is called Continued Conversations and it works like a charm on Android devices.

With this feature enabled, you only have to say the hot phrase (“Hello, Google”) once. You can then go ahead and ask as many follow-up questions as needed.

It’s actually quite handy. In fact, when you start using Continued Conversation, you will wonder how you managed with Google Assistant. I’ve been using Continued Conversation for a while and I find it extremely useful when I need to learn about a particular topic.

Let me show you how to turn on Continuous Chat so you can start chatting with the Google Assistant.


The only thing you need is an Android phone with at least Version 9 operating system. Since this feature has been around since 2018, most Android devices should have it. Let’s make it work for you.

I will perform on a Pixel 7 Pro with Android 13. If you have an earlier version of Android, the steps to enable the feature may be slightly different.

How to enable Continued Conversation

Sign in to your Android phone and open the Settings app from the App Drawer or Notification Ball.

Locate and tap Apps from within Settings, then tap Assistant from the results page.

From the Assistant page, scroll to the bottom and press the ON/OFF slider for Continued Conversation to the ON position. Once you’ve done this, you can exit the Settings app.

The Chat option continues in the Android 13 Settings app.

Enable persistent chat in Android 13.

With the feature enabled, you can now engage in more chat interactions with the Google Assistant. Try it out and see if it makes your life with Android a little easier.
