Just saying “Hey, Google, good morning” to your smart speaker is enough to make it spring into action.
¨Hey Google, Good Morning¨
Your Google Assistant will, let you know the date, time, if you have any appointments for the day and inform you about the weather so you know what to put on that day.
All this from your one command ¨Good Morning¨
Maybe you want to flip on your smart lights, play music, turn your connected thermostat up or down and more.
All you need to do is set up your own tailormade router.

You’ll see fields for a command, a day and time, Assistant actions, and media. For the command, enter whatever phrase you’d like to use to trigger all the actions that follow.
Note that Google Assistant doesn’t respond well to questions — it searches for the answer itself instead of realizing you’re triggering a routine. For the best results, keep your commands to statements and phrases.
