Get help with your daily routines

You can ask your Google Assistant to help with routines throughout your day. Say one command and your Assistant can do multiple actions.

For example, if you say:

  • OK Google, good morning,” your Assistant can turn on the lights, tell you about the weather, play music or news, and more.
  • OK Google, let’s go home,” your Assistant can give a traffic update, send and read texts, play a podcast, and more.
  • OK Google, bedtime,” your Assistant can set an alarm, turn off lights, play sleep sounds, and more.

To see other routines you can get help with, follow steps 1—4 below.

Important: Some features aren't available in all languages or countries.
