Create Custom Voice Activated Hotwords for Tasker with the Hotword Plugin

Many have wondered why Google doesn’t allow you to create custom hotwords for its voice assistant when other OEMs like Motorola do. Thankfully, we can handle the issue ourselves with the help of Tasker and this new free plugin called Hotword Plugin. The Tasker plugin is from XDA Senior Member Humpie and it uses Snowboy Hotword to listen to audio from the mic and process it completely locally. Different hotword models can be trained on the Snowboy website and you can then import them directly into the plugin. Check it out!
