Google Home is getting a major update in terms of design and features. To bring in compatibility for the new Nest and Pixel devices and further improve the integration with the previous devices, Google brings a whole new Google Home. Google is adding new routines, conditions and actions to make more complex routines in the easiest possible way.
The users can create time-specific routines which will toggle the services as set with just a single Tap. For Eg, the users can create Safety Routine for the nighttime or if you’re away. It will arm your security cameras after locking all the front and rear doors. Similarly, the user can set up a convenient Routine, Energy Saving Routine or fun party Routine.
Personal and Household Routines
Google added the ability to set up individual routines which will only be accessed by the creator. However, the user can also create Household Routines also that will be accessible by all.
Easy Accessibility – Starters + Conditions + Actions
With the new update, Google has made the Routines easily accessible and maintainable for the users. Now, routines mainly consist of three parts – Starters + Conditions + Actions. It is better to have a look at the table below for an easy understanding:
