Disabling Google Assistant on your OPPO phone

All Android smartphones have Google Assistant. It is a personal robot that answers user questions and performs routine actions, such as setting an alarm, calling a specific caller, or sending a message. Despite its versatility, this tool can get in the way. Today, let's find out how to disable Google Assistant on your OPPO phone.

Pros and cons of the assistant

First, let's look at the pros and cons of Google Assistant. The advantages include:

  • Quickness. You can immediately access the information of interest by voice. There is no need to manually type the request.
  • Convenience. Ask the smart assistant to set an alarm or send a text message. You don't have to go to other apps and do things yourself.
  • Functionality. In addition to performing search queries, Assistant can tell tales and anecdotes, sing lullabies, and play games.


  • Random triggers.
  • Queries are not always recognized correctly.
  • Limited functionality in terms of smartphone control. The assistant cannot turn off or restart the mobile device.

Why turn it off?

Google Assistant on Oppo may not work correctly. If you have virtual buttons enabled instead of gestures, a long press on the "Home" key brings up the assistant. The thing is, this button is easy to snag, and immediately the window with the assistant appears. If you still speak, the robot will consider it as a voice command and give you a search result.

The power button turns on the Google Assistant if you hold it down for a few seconds. This is also an inconvenience. And, of course, users want to turn off the Smart Assistant if they just don't use it.

    Добрый день!
    телефон OPPO RENO 7 (android 13)
    1. Подскажите пожалуйста, как отключить новости от Гугл при пролистывании влево на рабочем столе ?
    2. Гугл ассистент выскакивает при выполнении жеста от нижнего правого края в сторону центра экрана на рабочем столе и пишет, что «Гугл ассистент готов помогать вам», в настройках отключил где есть возможность. Как в данном случае отключить?

    I bought a Reno 5 life, I do not see the usual as in the previous OPPO smart assistant, built-in pedometer, too, no. These features are not in this model? And I can not turn off google news, on the left side of the desktop. Thanks

      You have the EU version. Google feed cannot be turned off, so there is no smart assistant with a pedometer.

    The helper still pops up and asks you to turn it on

    1. Yegor Borisov author

      If you mean gesture. Try: Settings - Application Control - Default Applications - Digital Assistant - None.
