So, it appears that the silver button launches 'Voice Search' rather than 'Assistant'. Voice search doesn't seem to be as capable as Assistant (I think it may just do a Goole Now search). Anyone got any ideas on how to change this behavior?

Install Saiy assistant app from the Play Store.

Choose Saiy as your voice assistant.

Thoroughly configure Saiy to your liking.

Disable the pre-installed voice assistant.

Thereafter, pressing the silver button activates Saiy with the cover open or closed.

Saiy works very well thus far in my few weeks using it.

Cheers.

So, can you tell me how to disable the pre-installed voice assistant?

Thanks!

Thanks Ifanafi, that's certainly an option, however it would be nice if we could get assistant working. I don't know if there is a way to fully remap keys (would also be nice to change some behaviour of the keyboard as well). I've downloaded Saiy as you suggested and will give that a go for now.

Don, you can switch between Google voice search and Saiy using the 'Gemini Voice Assistant' app.
