Google’s Smart Lock options in Lollipop are expanding rapidly, with Google already adding Trusted Places, and then more recently ‘On-Body Detection’ to the list since the latest version of the OS launched back in October. Google is apparently starting to roll another option out – Trusted Voice.
According to a number of users who’ve contacted Android Police, the Smart Lock section under Security in the Settings menu is now showing ‘Trusted Voice’ as an option. The new option allows users to use the ‘Ok Google’ phrase to unlock their phone ‘when the sound matches the voice model’.
Google warns in the settings that this isn’t as secure as other options available, but then the Smart Lock options to us have always been about convenience when your phone is in your immediate vicinity.
The update hasn’t hit our devices as yet, but it looks like it’s coming. Have you gotten the option in your Smart Lock section yet?
