Once you Set up Google Assistant on your iPhone, you may wish to change nickname; By default, Google Assistant calls you by your name which you have added while signing up. But what if you want it to call you by a special name, how would you add/change nickname in Google Assistant on your iPhone?
Interestingly, you are allowed to not only add a nickname but also spell it out just the way you want. Even better, there is also an option to record your own name. Want to check out how it’s done? Let’s dive across!
How to Add or Change Tthe Nickname in Google Assistant on iPhone and iPad
Step #1. Launch Google Assistant on your iOS device → Tap on the tiny circle at the top right corner.
Step #2. Now, you have to tap on the menu button (three horizontal dots) at the top right.
Step #3. Next, tap on Settings.
Step #4. Tap on Personal Info.
Step #5. Tap on Nickname.

Change How Assistant Says Your Name
Just in case, you think that the Assistant is not able to pronounce your name correctly, you have the option to change how it says your name. (Follow all the steps mentioned above and then continue:)
Under Pronunciation, you have three options:
- Use the nickname as default.
- Spell it out
- Record your own
- Tap on Spell it out. Then, you need to enter the spelling of the name. As for instance, Lion can be spelled out as Lyon. Tap on the play button to hear the pronunciation of the nickname.
- Check out the option to record the name. Tap on Record you own. Then, tap on the microphone button and record it. Tap on the play button to hear it. In the end quit the settings.
The Bottom Line
What’s your feedback about Google Assistant? Do you think that it is threatening to take away the sheen from Siri on iOS devices?
It would be a bit too immature to say that the arrival of Assistant will kill Siri on iOS. But I must say the game has become more intense than ever before. And with such a tough competition on the offing, it’s the end users who are the winner!
