Google have recently been adding new features to the Google Home app, and more specifically Routines, and now they are set to roll out another new feature. According to a Redditor Google will be introducing a new sunrise/sunset trigger in the near future with it already landing on some users’ app already.
In the latest beta release of the Google Home app (v188.8.131.52) there is a new sunset or sunrise trigger for routines — along with a new user interface for creating routines. XDA have shown off some screenshots from the updated beta app with a new option to trigger a routine which then breaks down into whether you want the routine to being at sunrise or sunset.
After selecting either sunset or sunrise you can then set a time related to either of these — eg. 1 hours after sunrise or 30 minutes before sunset. You can also change specify the days of the week when these routines will trigger, which device(s) you want the Routine to run on and whether to enable to disable notifications for the routine.
The new update is available only for a select few beta users at this stage but hopefully it won’t be too long before we see it in the stable channel. Anyone got any uses for this new trigger? Let us know in the comments so we can share ideas.
