The Google Assistant will let you do a lot of different things with your phone and some of these features are extremely useful and awesome! Here is a list of 5 secret Google Assistant features you should be using.
The routine feature lets you set certain actions related to certain key phrases. These phrases include – good morning – I’m leaving – let’s go to work – let’s go home – I’m home – bedtime.
You can make it so that these certain key phrases when said will execute certain actions in your phone such as put the phone on silent, or even adjust the brightness of your phone! Other settings include: adjusting the volume / setting an alarm / telling you the weather and more!
You can also modify the trigger phrase of these routines as well as modify the actions even more!
Often you will hear a song either in the background or on the radio somewhere. You might sometimes immediately love the music and want to add it to your playlist!
