How to Make Google Home Your Personal Assistant

We’ve all been there before, you’re sitting at your table in the kitchen late at night and you ask yourself: “What can I make for dinner tonight that my husband or kids would actually like?” or “What’s on TV tonight?” You try asking your smart TV but you end up getting an error message that no one can seem to fix. Your phone is in the other room and you don’t feel like getting up to turn on the TV or hunt through the apps to find the channels that you actually want to watch. Then you remember, “Oh yeah, I have Google Home!” You say “OK Google” followed by the question and then sit back and relax while Google Home does all the work for you!

You can also select specific emails to have Google Home read to you.

Ask Google Home What’s On Your To-Do List

One of the best things about Google Home is how you can ask it to do simple tasks for you. You can say “OK Google, what’s on my to-do list?” or “What’s on my agenda for today?” You can also ask Google Home “What are my reminders?” or “What’s on my calendar for tomorrow?” When you use these commands, Google Home will read off your to-do list or agenda items and you can even add items using the Google Home app.

How to Use Google Home to Find Out the Temperature In Your House

For example, “OK Google, set the temperature to 70 degrees.” You can also ask “What is my indoor/outdoor temperature?” to have Google Home tell you the weather forecast for your area.

Ask Google Home for Current Local Weather Conditions
