  • Google Home Max Review The Mc Mansion of Smart Speakers

You can pick your favorite song or artist. Luckily, the Google Assistant can help you wake up more peacefully. You can now ask Assistant things like "Hey Google, when does Silicon Valley air next" or "Hey Google, what channel airs Silicon Valley" to find when and where a show is going to play. Just say "Hey Google, set an alarm for 6 a.m. that plays [your favorite musician]" to your Google Home or other Assistant-enabled smart speaker.

Also included in today's update is a feature that lets you check the TV schedule and play music from your own music library with your voice. Need a reminder to tune in to your favorite show? So before we dive into how you can use various smart appliances, you'll want to know which smart home products and platforms integrate with them. The first step is to link your Netflix account in the Google Home app or via the Google Assistant on your phone.


Google on Thursday announced that Assistant can now set music alarms, a feature that arrived on Amazon's rival Alexa voice assistant in December.

The alarms seem to work with whichever music service you've set the Assistant to use by default, so Spotify and Pandora, for instance, should be supported.
