Google has updated the Google Assistant for Google Home, Google Home Max or other smart speakers, making it easier for consumers to set an alarm clock, find a show on Netflix content or listen to music.
With Google Home, Google Home Max or your other smart speakers, the Assistant can help do everyday things like turn on compatible living room lights, plan your day and even show you your photos from the holidays. Now, you can
say "Hey Google, set an alarm for 6 AM that plays [insert favorite musician]" to the Assistant on Google Home (or your other Assistant-enabled speakers) and you can set an alarm and wake up to your favorite song, playlist or radio station.
The Assistant can already help you learn about actors or play a TV show, and now it can help you keep up with the TV shows you're into right now. Say "Hey Google, what channel airs The Flash" or "Hey Google, when does The Flash air next." And you can set a reminder so you never miss the show. Google is also making your Netflix casting experience more personal. The first step is to link your Netflix account in the Google Home app or via the Google Assistant on your phone. From there, just choose your Netflix profile and get right to the things you want to watch. Thanks to Voice Match on the Assistant, you can say, "Hey Google, play Stranger Things on Netflix" and it will pick up right where you left off.
Finally, if you're a Google Play Music user, you can now enjoy all the music that you've purchased or uploaded to your music library.
