Are you tired of your voice assistant constantly interrupting your activities on your Android tablet? Don’t worry, turning off the voice assistant is a simple process. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to disable the voice assistant on your Android tablet.

Step 1: Access Settings

To begin, unlock your Android tablet and locate the Settings app. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon and can usually be found on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 2: Navigate to Accessibility

Once you have opened the Settings app, scroll down until you find the Accessibility option. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Disable Voice Assistant

In the Accessibility settings, you will see a list of various accessibility features available on your Android tablet. Look for an option called Voice Assistant. Tap on it to access the Voice Assistant settings.

If Voice Assistant is currently enabled, you will find a toggle switch at the top of the screen. To turn off Voice Assistant, simply tap on the toggle switch once. The switch should move from an enabled position (usually blue) to a disabled position (usually gray).

If prompted for confirmation, select “Yes” or “OK”, depending on your device’s interface.


  • If you are unable to find Voice Assistant directly in the Accessibility settings, look for additional options such as TalkBack, which may serve as a separate setting for voice assistance.
  • The exact location and naming of these settings may vary slightly depending on your Android tablet’s manufacturer and operating system version.

Step 4: Test Disabled Voice Assistant

Once you have disabled Voice Assistant, it’s a good idea to test whether it is no longer interrupting your activities. Navigate to your home screen or open any app to see if the voice assistant feature remains disabled.

If you find that Voice Assistant is still active, repeat the above steps carefully and ensure that the toggle switch is in the disabled position.

Congratulations! You have successfully turned off Voice Assistant on your Android tablet. Enjoy a more uninterrupted and focused experience on your device!
