Vibrant displays and fast charging may be what makes the Nexus 5XL a phone to beat.
But how do you put a phone that can do it all into one that doesn’t?
That’s the challenge of installing Voice on the Nexus 6P, a phone which boasts a 13-megapixel camera, an 8-megacorp processor and a 1080p display.
We’ve got a full guide to it here.
In this video, we’ll walk you through how to set up Voice on your Nexus 6.
The guide assumes you have a rooted phone, so don’t worry if you’re a little rusty.
First, you’ll need a working Nexus 6 and a computer that can access your USB ports.
Then download the Voice app from Google Play.
To set it up, you need to do one of the following:Find a USB port on your phone, like the one that’s next to the speaker or power button.
Plug in your phone and press the volume buttons.
Then, connect to your computer with the same connection you used to connect to the phone.
You’ll need to select your device, but if you do, you should see a list of all your devices on the screen.
If it’s your phone or tablet, it should be labeled “Nexus 6” or something similar.
Select the phone, and tap on the Voice icon.
This will give you the option to choose which voice assistant to use.
To get Voice to work on your device:Find the USB port where you plugged your Nexus.
Plug the Nexus in.
If you don’t have a USB charger, you can use a USB stick or a USB cable.
(We’ve found that we can also use a power cable to charge the phone.)
Plug the USB cable into your computer and turn it on.
If you’re using a USB battery, connect it to the USB plug and power on the phone to charge it.
If using a microUSB battery, plug it into the USB charger.
If not, plug the USB battery into the MicroUSB port.
When your phone boots up, your phone will say “Hello, Google” or “Hey, Google!”
The screen should flash and then turn black.
The app will ask for your PIN and a password.
Tap on the PIN to confirm the PIN.
You can now activate Voice.
If Voice does not work, you may need to use the microUSB cable.
To do that, open the settings app.
Go to General.
Tap the About tab.
Tap Access to Google Services.
Once Voice is enabled, you will see a notification.
To dismiss the notification, tap the Settings icon.
Tap General Settings.
Tap the Enable button.
To exit the Voice settings, tap Exit Voice.
To enable Voice for your phone:Open the Settings app.
Tap Android Nougat.
Tap Google Assistant.
Tap “Hey Google” (or something similar).
The app should say “Hey you” or the similar message.
Tap “OK” (again).
You’ll be asked to confirm that you want to activate Voice for the phone in the Settings menu.
If it doesn’t work, it’s time to try again.
Tap Android Noughts.
Tap your phone.
Go to the Voice Settings menu and tap Enable.
Tap Exit Voice again.
Tap OK to exit Voice.
