Google Assistant routines are one of the most powerful features on Nest smart speakers and displays. Make the start of your day a little less stressful by using the “Good Morning” routine to automate your home.
Google Assistant’s “Good Morning” routine is great for setting things in motion when you wake up in the morning. It includes turning on lights, hearing the weather forecast, starting a music playlist, and more. Let’s get into it.
You’ll now see a list of routines, including some that Google has already made. Select “Good Morning.”
There are a few different sections on this page that determine what the routine will do. At the top, tap the text under “When” or “How to Start.”
This is where you can choose commands to initiate the “Good Morning” routine. There are a few commands already listed, and you can tap “Add” to enter more.
Select “OK” or “Done” when you’re finished entering commands.
The next section determines what Google Assistant will do and in what order it will happen. There are a number of pre-filled actions that you can select to edit or turn off.
To add your own custom action, tap “Add Action.”
You’ll see a list of categories for things that Google Assistant can do. At the bottom, you can select “Try Adding Your Own” to enter a custom command. For example, you could enter “watch ESPN on Sling TV” to automatically watch your favorite channel while eating breakfast. Tap “Add” when you’re finished.
Next, we can adjust the order in which these actions will occur. Tap “Change Order” or the pencil icon in the top-right corner.
Tap and hold the handle (four stacked lines) next to an action to drag it up or down to adjust the order. Tap “Done” when you’re finished.
Select the “Save” button to save the routine when you’re done.
Now, all you have to do is say “Hey Google, good morning” (or any of the other commands that you entered), and the routine will run. At this point, you can customize a Google Assistant routine for bedtime.
