If you’ve ever struggled to turn off your Google Home alarm in the mornings then this one’s for you.

Announced at Google IO this morning, you can now finally silence a Google Home alarm by saying “Stop” instead of having to compose yourself enough to calmly announce “Hey Google, stop”.

The update is rolling out to Google Smart Displays and Homes, starting today.

The enormity of this change cannot be overstated for those of us who might not be morning people.

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!
