Are you one of the millions of people who own a Pixel watch? If so, you may be using its most important feature – Google Assistant – without realizing it. But here’s why you need to stop using it and switch to a different app instead.

Google Assistant is an excellent tool for hands-free voice control, but it can also be distracting. When you use Google Assistant, your eyes are fixed on the watch face, which makes it hard to focus on the task at hand. And if you’re walking or driving, using Google Assistant can be dangerous.

One study found that people who used hands-free devices while driving were more likely to be involved in accidents than those who didn’t. In fact, 10% of all distracted driving crashes involved the use of handheld devices. So if you want to stay safe while using your Pixel watch, it’s time to ditch Google Assistant and switch to a different app instead.

One alternative is to use the "Ok Google" voice search feature on your phone or computer. This will allow you to search for things hands-free without having to look down at your Pixel watch. You can also use other voice search apps like Siri or Alexa, depending on which device you have.

Another option is to switch to a physical keyboard or touch screen to type out your commands instead of relying on voice commands. This will give you more control over what you’re doing and allow you to focus more on the task at hand.

Of course, it’s important to note that no app is perfect, and there are still risks associated with using any hands-free device while driving or walking. But by ditching Google Assistant on your Pixel watch, you can take one step towards safer and more focused behavior.

So if you want to stay safe and avoid distractions while using your Pixel watch, it’s time to switch to a different app or type out your commands instead of relying on voice commands.
