Google Assistant can at last schedule your smart lights
- November 23, 2020
Google Assistant as of now works with Hue and other smart lights, however usefulness has been restricted to turning them on and off, utilizing them with alarms and a couple of different highlights. Presently, you can schedule lights and other electric gadgets to turn on and off at explicit and even general times, as Android Police and Reddit clients have noted.
The feature works through Google’s “Scheduled Actions” feature. That permits you to state “Hey Google, turn on the lights at 7 AM,” for instance. You can set times for the current day or some other day throughout the following week by saying “Hey Google, turn on my coffee maker at 8 AM tomorrow,” or “run my sprinkler in a week at 5 PM,” for instance. Android Police found that you can even set it to turn lights on or off at sunrise or sunset, without the need to affirm a specific time.
The feature is working, yet at the same time seems to require greater refinement. For example, in the event that you state “tomorrow” without referencing a particular time, it will simply recognize the command yet do nothing. Additionally, Google’s documentation expresses that you can cancel scheduled actions, yet that function doesn’t seem to work yet, as per Reddit and Android Police clients. In view of the Google Assistant smart home documentation, nonetheless, those highlights should be working soon.
