Google Assistant Now Let's You Set Music Alarms

Google Adds New Features to Assistant on Speakers Google Home will now wake you up with your song of choice
Olivia Ford | 03 February, 2018, 09:58

The new features start rolling out this week and there isn't anything to set up. Simply link your Google account to your Netflix account and get playing!

The alarm will play the music from the music service you have linked to it and set as the default. The first lets you ask when your favorite show is on next, or what channel it's on, and Google will be ready with the info.

And for Netflix users, Voice Match on the Google Home can now sync up your voice to your Netflix profile, so when you ask Google to play shows through Netflix on a Cast-enabled device, it'll stay on your profile with your watch history and TV show progress instead of mixing everything up with anything who might be using the Google Home in your house.

Another interesting improvement to note is the ability to find out what's on TV by looking up schedules. You'll also be able to use any songs uploaded to your Google Play Music library. You can also ask "which channel airs America's Next Top Model" to get information about play time for the next new episode.

Anneliese Olson, HP's head of home printing, says that connecting printers with voice assistants is convenient and useful though in the future, HP printers will likely be responsive to voice commands on their own.

HP says that in the future, printers will have voice assistants baked into them, so you won't need a separate speaker like an Echo or Google Home to control it by voice. This is the latest in the growing lineup of resource-friendly apps designed for the Android Go platform. "And same for your roommate or partner", Google says. The smart speaker now comes with a better app interface, improved search feature, intercom feature, and more.

The Google Assistant is incredibly versatile, providing literally a million different features while coming pre-installed on almost every modern Android device.
