Google Assistant routines are useful for creating day-to-day automations. For example, you can program a routine that turns on the lights when you get home or one that activates the do not disturb mode of the mobile after a certain time. In addition, we can create several actions within the same routine, but what we cannot do is chain several, until now.
A few days ago, we told you that routines opened the breaks between actions and today comes a new option: routines all day. Now, the wizard allows us to generate routines for a whole day and thus not have to create them one at a time. We tell you how it works.
How to Create a Daily Routine with the Google Assistant
To get started, enter the Google app, click on your profile picture at the top left, enter Settings, then select Google Assistant. Here, select the Routines section and click on the + icon to create a new one.
If you have enabled the option, you will see that a pop-up appears asking us if we want to create a routine that lasts all day. We say yes and the first step will be to select the day (s) of the week we want the routine to run. In our case, we are going to create one for the days of the week, so we select from Monday to Friday.
Next, we will need to select a time and tell it which actions will be performed among all the available ones. We chose that at 7 o’clock in the morning it tells us the part of the time, informs us about the home-work journey, the schedule for the day and finally, it gives the news. It is important to know that if one chooses any multimedia reproduction, it must go to the end of the rest of the actions.
You can create other actions for different times of the day, for example lower the volume of the mobile at 10:30 a.m., turn on the thermostat at 6:00 p.m. when you get home or put the Do not disturb mode when you go to sleep. All the actions will appear in a list divided by the times we have chosen, as in the photo on these lines.
