Map Any Button to Launch Google Assistant on Android

google assistant button mapper

Different devices have mapped different buttons to launch the corresponding applications of the Voice Assistant. Some Samsung devices come with a Bixby button to launch Bixby. Similarly, pixels have their own key to launch Google Assistant. Nowadays, it becomes more and more common to have a separate key for this purpose only. But unfortunately, not everyone can enjoy this benefit. Talking about "OK Google" remains a convenient way to launch the Wizard application, but in some cases it can also be irritating. Applications such as Button Mapper are convenient because they allow you to map any hardware button on your phone to launch Google Assistant.

I always carry two of my Android devices. My voice was introduced in both devices to launch the Google Assistant. As a result, it becomes extremely difficult to launch the wizard in one device without waking up or disturbing the other. In these cases, it may be useful to map any button on your device to launch the Google Assistant application. This is what we will cover in this guide.

Hardware Mapping button to launch Google Assistant

Although many applications are able to do this, the one I use personally without any hiccups is the Mapper button app. But before you start the process, remember this. When you map a key, always assign the Google Assistant open functionality to an action for which no feature has been predefined. For example, if you plan to choose the volume key, it is recommended that you select the Tap twice option rather than Type once. Indeed, Single Tap already has a predefined volume increase feature. Thus, choosing the single-shot option can create a conflict situation.
