This document describes a technique for managing multiple sensors in one or more devices carried by the user in a voice activated computing system. The sensors can include, for example, location sensors, temperature sensors, light sensors, acoustic sensors, directional sensors, motion sensors, velocity sensors, etc. In some instances, the user may carry multiple devices, such as smartphones, smartwatches, navigation systems, etc., where more than one device include similar sensors. The system can manage the function, capability, and use of these sensors across the user’s multiple devices. The system may request sensor data, such as location data, from a sensor on only one of the multiple devices having similar sensors based on resource utilization of each of the multiple devices.
