After announcing a heap of new feature improvements for Assistant earlier this month, the ability to intitiate custom Google Assistant routines from your Alarm clock is now rolling out in Australia.
The integration allows you to trigger a custom routine when you dismiss your alarm on your phone, starting things like the ‘My Day’ routine, turning on lights and more. The option shows up when you start a new alarm, or edit an existing one with the function greyed out until you select it then the Google Assistant icon gets coloured when active.
Once selected you then enter a screen asking you to define your routine, just like if you’d activated a custom routine on your phone, or Google Assistant powered speaker.
The update to include Google Assistant in your clock appears to be a server side switch, with no update to my Clock apps on various phones with it now showing, since the 10th of October.
If you’re wanting to try it out, it shouldn’t be too long before you see this on your phone or Android device.
