To help you streamline your morning, Google has brought Assistant Routines to the Clock app for Android phones in Australia.

After dismissing an alarm, Assistant users can start routines, triggering multiple things such as announcement of the weather forecast, viewing traffic on the way to work, brewing a coffee and more.

Whatever your routine or smart home devices, you can create whatever you like within Assistant Routines, and access them readily using Clock.

Here’s how it looks:

I still dont have routines in the clock app sadly I’m guessing it’s still rolling out.


Was a previous post on this published a few months ago deleted?

I remember Daniel Tyson announcing that it this was available on Australia, but I commented and also researched that there was no commonality between devices or OS getting the update.

I’ve now had Routines available on my S8 for the past few days, but still not sure what the delay was in?
