Hi there,
I am considering making my life a Google eco system through phone and home and wanted to list off some things to see if it is capable of what I am desiring.
Below is a list of things I would like to be able to do after purchasing a Google phone, Google Home (with minis in other rooms if need be), a chrome cast for my smart tv and using all Googles applications IE; email, Google drive, contacts, calendar etc.
1. I want to be able to walk into my home and make my tv turn on and stream whatever I want. I want it to be able to switch between sources (HDMI 1 , 2 ,3 etc) on voice command, I want it to be able to record on command and I want it to be able to go to YouTube and play videos on command. I want to be able to control it whilst on my way home as well, IE: Tell google to play 'this song' when I walk in the door at home.
2. I want to be able to use voice commands either in my car with the phone or at home to mark down appointments in my calendar, call someone, or send a text message. I will have a google phone for me and my wife and a family calendar. I want to be able to tell google to 'make a reminder on the 22nd of June I have a dentist appointment at 2pm' and google to be able to lodge that in the calendar, with the option to set a reminder. Additionally, I want it to be able to know that my wife also has an appointment on that date and say "ok, but your wife OR name, has an appointment on that day also" and something to that effect. 
3. I want to be able to have something showing on my phone and be able to by voice tell google to "display what is showing on my phone now" and push to tv (Chromecast I assume?). I want to be able to be in the kitchen and say, "google how long should I cook fried chicken" and it give a reply and then me be able to bring up a video from YouTube if required. 
4. I am currently renting so I am limited in what I can amend home wise, however I will eventually use lights, set it to me roller doors and even coffee machine or oven. I want to be able to set it to timings. To use as an example, I want to be able to set it so Google wakes me up at 5am, it then turns on the tv and begins streaming a mourning yoga routine at 510am, during this time it is brewing my coffee (a smart coffee maker), it then opens my roller door at 530am and closes it at 532 am. I also want it to tell me before going to work (as it knows I am working Monday to Friday), that there is traffic on the main highway or such. I also want to be able to be in my home at 5 am on a public holiday and google begins its sequence and I can say "google, today is a day off for me, disable morning routine for today" and go back to bed.
I might be asking too much, but I really want to know if this is achievable if I buy all the google eco system requirements? 
Any advice on how to properly achieve this or if I am living in fairy land, please let me know.
