Whew I succeeded in turning Google Assistant off again after inadvertently turning it on. I wish I could remove the bleeping thing completely.
@irina On my phone I was able to "disable" the Google Search app, and this worked to get rid of Google Assistant. I don't want to use Google Search anyway.
@gcupc Er, excuse my stupid question. Didn't get enough sleep last night or enough tea this morning.
@irina Yeah, a Moto G (5) running Android O.
@gcupc My previous phone was a Moto G! Current one is a Nokia 6 running Android 9.
