How to start a stopwatch?
0
I am trying to use google now/assistant to start a stopwatch (that counts up) but when I say "stopwatch "or "start stopwatch" it only does a web search.  I want it to work like "start timer" does.

Hi Steve,
 
If you have the Google Clock app installed then ask the assistant to "open clock" and you will find a stopwatch feature within the Google Clock app.

I tried this on my Chromebook and it opened stop watch on Google.com. That could be a workaround too.

It seems like works now (as of 2019/9/2)

Discover Google Assistant Actions for your supported devices.
Search for Clock or Counting Timer
When you visit an action search result, select READ MORE if provided, select LINK if provided, select Send To Device for each device and test action on your mobile or Google Nest device.

Use Alexa? This boggles my mind... Saying "start a stopwatch", "stopwatch", anything I can think of just gives me the definition of a stopwatch then asks me for the duration, so that's not helpful at all. I guess just open the app on your phone and start a stopwatch.

edit: trying to add the "counting timer" to assistant, as James M. suggests above, won't let me send it to my Hub Max, just speaker or phone. What's with that??

My stopwatch works as expected.  Verbal is Hey Google Stopwatch" which starts a stopwatch.
