Quick Phrases needs to be activated from the Google Assistant settings. Once enabled, Google Assistant will listen for certain phrases depending on the context. For example, if an alarm is going off, Assistant will listen for whether the user says "Stop" or "Snooze" without requiring the user to say "Hey Google". An incoming call can be answered by just saying "Answer" or rejected by saying "Decline".
