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 perform 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 that you can get help with, follow steps 1–4 below.
