Google has recently started rolling out it's much talked about feature "Routines" in the US. The feature was announced back in October 2017 and was one of the most anticipated features by Google. The "Routines" allows a user to perform a number of Google Assistant actions with just a single phrase. It is also being reported that the Google Assistant "Routines" will replace the already available "My Day" feature from the services list.
The report further suggests that the "Routines" will be made available on Google Home along with the smartphones and tablets that are running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above. Apple users will also be able to use the feature as it is also available for iOS devices.
Following are the available six Routines which are listed on Google's support page
1. Good Morning Routine
2. Bedtime Routine
3. Leaving home Routine
4. I'm home Routine
5. Commuting to work (available only on smartphones)
6. Commuting home( available only on smartphones)
As mentioned above the Google Assistant "Routines" is available for the US consumers only at the moment there is no information when the feature will be available for more countries and when it will be rolled out for the Indian market. We hope an early release by Google and would like to get our hand on this feature in the future.
