Google has introduced a feature called “Continued Conversation” for Google Home, Home Mini and Home Max that would allow users to ask Assistant a question and then add a follow-up or a reminder without having to say, “OK Google,” each time.

The feature would work by keeping Assistant active after an initial request, for which users would first have to enable it by going to the “Google Assistant” app settings, The Verge reported late on Thursday.
