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.
