How to Turn on Google Assistant on Your Chromebook Now


Google is not officially enabling Google Assistant by default on all Chromebooks until Chrome OS 77 is launched. But you can enable it now by activating a switch under the hood.

Google includes its voice-activated digital assistant, Google Assistant, on products such as Android phones and tablets and its smart speaker line Google Home. But the Assistant is not yet available on the Chromebook. But Google is ready to include it with a future version of Chrome OS. However, the good thing is that you can enable the experimental feature right now on your Chromebook. Here’s how to make it work.

Enable Google Assistant in Chromebook

To begin, you will need to enable a Flag that is "under the hood", so to speak. Start the Chrome browser and enter the following path in the search box and press Enter.

  chrome: // flags / # enable-native-google-assistant 

That highlights the "Enable Google Assistant" flag. Click on the drop-down menu and choose Enabled . Then scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Restart now button to restart your system for the changes to take effect.


After restarting your Chromebook, you can start using the Wizard. Press the keyboard shortcut Search + A to display the Google Assistant screen and type your queries. Or, if you want it to be activated by voice and enable more features and click on the "Start" link.


Now you just need to follow the instructions on the screen. You will have to finish setting up the Google Assistant with your account, enable permissions, train your voice, etc.


If you wish to further modify the Assistant function, press Search + A or simply say "OK Google" or "Hello Google" and then click Settings> Assistant> Chromebook . There you can do things like retrain your voice, allow notifications, voice or keyboard input and more.


That's it! You can now start using the Google Assistant as you would if you did it on your Android phone or tablet, on the Google Home smart speaker or on selected TVs. If you are new to the Google digital assistant and are not sure what you can do, see our article on 21 useful things you can tell Google Assistant to get started.

Again, Google is not set up to officially enable the Wizard on all Chromebooks until the release of Chrome OS 77. By then, it should be better integrated, more stable and include more features. Still, it's great to turn on the Assistant today and try it.
