Google Assistant works Automatically at a Scheduled Time

Ever wondered if your Google Assistant could do your work automatically?

Wouldn’t it be so thoughtful if there’s an automatic device that turns off the lights in your room at exactly 7 AM? Or if you wanted your TV to switch ON to a particular channel or your smartphone to turn on to YouTube at a particular time? Or if you preferred a device to automatically play your favourite songs while you’re busy taking a shower?
What if you tend to fall asleep by watching your favorite series on your laptop or TV and you want to save energy by somehow turning it OFF automatically? Or if you want to double check if all your doors are locked?

Well, all these questions are not going to be left unanswered. This is because Google has finally launched the Schedule feature on the Google Assistant. It could help you with all of the above scenarios along with many more features.

Note – The above mentioned examples could be possible only if you have the required smart home hardware devices.

More Information regarding Google Assistant’s new automatic features –

Earlier this year in May, at the Google I/O, Google had announced about two certain features related to the Google Assistant. These were:

  • Custom Routine – The custom routine feature basically allows you to trigger multiple commands with just a single custom phrase.
    For example, in order to un-silence your smartphone, you could just say “Hey Google, I’m awake.” Do note that a custom phrase such as this example can also be used for other automatic jobs like to turn on your bedroom lights or even read the news for you.
  • Schedule – Unlike custom routine, schedules doesn’t need any phrase to trigger certain commands. That is, with schedules you could trigger many commands at a particular time on a particular day, without the interference of human voice.

The custom routine feature was launched right after the Google I/O without much delay. Whereas, the schedule feature was launched few days back on the 28th of July.
As first noticed by DroidLife, it looks like scheduling has started rolling out to users by way of the Google Home app.

How to make a Schedule using the Google Assistant?

As mentioned earlier, in order to use this automatic schedule option, you must have access to Google Home. Once you do have the access, all you need to do is follow these simple steps –

Step 1) Go to the Google Home app.

Step 2) Tap on ‘Settings‘ and then select ‘Routines‘.

Step 3) Click on the ‘+’ icon in order to create a new routine.

Step 4) Start scheduling your things ahead of a particular date and time by tapping on ‘Set a time and day’.

Voila! You’ve scheduled your work and the rest is taken care by your Google Assistant. This can be very helpful even if you have certain third party apps because it tends to have everything under control at just one place. Hence, easier to find out any flaws.
