Want to delete your Google Assistant voice commands history? It’s super easy to do and this blog post will guide you through the process.

Google Assistant is an AI virtual assistant developed by Google and is available in both smart home devices and smartphone. It records queries from users in the form of voice commands, analyzes them and offers search result though voice.

Google will suggest that the assistant might not correctly understand your “OK Google” voice commands or could fail to deliver personalized results after you perform this – just ignore it.
