  • @AliensExist said in Google assistant does not respond to hotwords:

    [HOTWORD] No model to load

    you missed a config step . hotword needs to know what word you will be speaking and what they sound like

    from the readme

        models: [
            hotwords    : "computer",
            file        : "computer.umdl",
            sensitivity : "0.5",
