I would like to set up the assistant so that I can have a conversation with it.

Right now, it gives :

  • "Hey Google, what is the weather forecast for tomorrow in HongKong?"
  • "Tomorrow in Hong Kong, it will be rainy with a max of 35°C and a min of 29°C"
  • "Hey Google, what about the weather forecast for sunday?"
  • "Sunday, it will be sunny with a max of 35°C and a min of 29°C"
  • "Hey Google, what was the maximum temperature today?"
  • "Today, the maximum temperature was 35°C"

I would like to find a way so that I do not need to say the trigger word every time, that would then give.

  • "Hey Google, what is the weather forecast for tomorrow in HongKong?"
  • "Tomorrow in Hong Kong, it will be rainy with a max of 35°C and a min of 29°C"
  • "What about the weather forecast for sunday?"
  • "Sunday, it will be sunny with a max of 35°C and a min of 29°C"
  • "What was the maximum temperature today?"
  • "Today, the maximum temperature was 35°C"

Is that possible? if yes, can I set the delay during which the Google home remains listening.

This is now possible with the continued conversations feature is deployed, announced at Google I/O 2018.

If continued conversations are enabled on your Google Home, the microphone will continue to listen for 8 seconds after the reply (or until you say "thank you", if you wish to prematurely stop it listening). A demonstration of the new flow is avaiable here, at AndroidPolice, where it's demonstrated that the following conversation could work:

Hey Google, did the Warriors win?

Yes, the Warriors won 118 to 92 last Sunday against the Pelicans.

Nice, when's their next game?

The Warriors' next game is today at 7:30pm, where they will be playing the Pelicans.
