    sorry i don't know which forum to ask this...

    is there a way to turn the microphone on so i can use OK GOOGLE and/or tap the microphone for google searches without google listening to me all the time to target ads?

    i am currently using a LG G8 with android v10.

    thank you!!

    That's a good question.... you have to turn the Google assistant off for it to stop listening in the background, you can try turning the assistant off then hit the microphone button and see if it does a voice search, if it prompts you to turn the assistant back on then you probably can't do what you're looking for.

    If you don't want targeted ads, then you could try opting out of personalized ads: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en-GB
