Smart display picking up words from podcast or audiobook when spoken to

2019-12-16, 5:26 AM

Whenever I play news podcasts, audiobooks, etc (where there is just spoken audio) and I trigger the display with "OK Google" and speak my command, I regularly have to repeat the command many times because the display picks up words from the audio it's broadcasting. To get around it, I have to pause the broadcast, say my command and then unpause it, which is annoying.

 

Has anyone come across this too ? Is there a way around this / fix for this ?

Do you have the 'Lower volume when listening' enabled?
It should be on by default, but may have been switched off inadvertently.

Just out of curiosity, is your device set to English AU or US  or UK?
