Which functions of the headphones can be operated by voice using Google Assistant?

    As of November 2021, the following functions can be operated by voice using Google Assistant:

    • Noise canceling function on/off
    • Ambient Sound Mode on/off
    • A function to speak the amount of remaining battery charge

    Open the Sony | Headphones Connect app, and then set the following functions to Google Assistant depending on your model:

    • WH-1000XM4: The CUSTOM button
    • WF-1000XM4: The Voice Assistant setting

    If you need model-specific information, check the Using the Google Assistant section in your product manuals for details.


    • These functions can change due to changes in Google specifications.
    • Always use the headphones with the latest software installed.
    • With the changes Google will be making to the Google Assistant feature, we plan to discontinue linking headphones to the Google Assistant app for devices running the iOS™ operating system. For details, visit the Google Assistant Help page (Google Assistant on headphones)
