Snips on iOS, can we use button instead of wakeword?

Can we use snips offline on iOS using a button in the app instead of wakeword, so that battery life will be preserved ?

Hello @jbmalezieux

Yes you can use it offline on iOS and manually start a session without the wakeword.

But the platform would need to be running even if you don’t use the wakeword.
You could launch the platform only when clicking a button, but it will also have a high impact on battery life and will take several seconds to start, so your users will have to wait after clicking the button.

Hi Charles,

Do you have any pointers / link to a guide as to how I can go about doing this?
