Here you can pick your preferred news sources such as NPR, CNET and ESPN. Next you can pick the default music service that your Google Home will use when you ask it to play a song, artist, album or playlist. In the Services tab select Music. Then pick your preferred service. You can link your Pandora, [UNKNOWN] or Spotify accounts, too, and set them as the default. Okay, Google, play house music. [MUSIC] The list of voice commands you can give Google Home is constantly growing. Try out these to get started. OKay Google, set a timer for two minutes. Alright, two minutes, starting now. hey Google, remember that my passport is in my top desk drawer. Okay, I'll remember that. Okay Google, add eggs avocados and juice to my shopping list.

Ice cold. Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright. A routine is a set of actions that happen at a scheduled time or when you give your Google Home a specific voice command.

If you like this voice and want me to keep using it just stop here. Okay Google what's the weather? Right now in San Francisco it's 59 and sunny. Want to use your Google Home at night but don't wanna wake people up with a loud reply? Have it automatically lower the volume after bedtime and raise it in the morning In the Google Home App, tape your speaker and then tap the gear icon. Scroll down and select night mode and toggle it on. Then you can set a schedule for when night mode should start and stop and select the maximum audio volume and maximum brightness.
