I personly do not think there is an option, I would like to further look into this. In the meantime, can you test in Safe Mode to see if this is an app issue? To go into Safe Mode, press the physical power key, then press and hold the pop-up " Power off" key until the Safe Mode instructions pop up. Reboot your device to get back to the 'Normal Mode'.

Re: Post Pie upgrade power button starts google assistant

Same issue with my new Z3 Play post upgrade, been looking for a while and this is the first thread I've seen on the issue. It results from a SLIGHT double tap of the power button (resulting in a half dozen presses to either wake up or lock as assistant keeps activating). Short of disabling assistant is there/will there be a solution?

Hi Coug,

 

You can turn off/change an option for this feature. Kindly go to Settings > System > Gestures > Double press key > You will see an option to set it to none, launch camera or launch assistance. Let me know if you can see that setting. Thanks

thanks! i thought i looked everywhere but i guess i missed that setting! it did fix it, assistant does not launch anymore. i guess the "double tap" of the button is very sensitive! thanks!
