One of the best ways you can utilise Google Assistant on your smartphone is by using the ‘Routines’ feature. A routine is a set of automated tasks and actions that are carried out during a specific time or whenever you say the trigger phrase. Routines are incredibly versatile and offer a lot of customisation options. For example, you can set a routine that carries out a set of tasks every time you come home from work. This routine can be customised to turn off mobile data and turn on WiFi on your phone, turn on the house lights of the living room, play a particular playlist on Spotify, and more. In this article, we show you how to set up daily routines with Google Assistant on Android in 2023.
