Google is finally rolling out the “Scheduled Routines” feature for its smart “Home” speakers that would help users make multi-step actions repeat on specific days with just one voice command.

Users will have six “Routines, including good morning, bedtime, leaving home, I’m home, commuting to work, and commuting home routines that they could customise and manage their maps, directions, parkings along with getting weather forecasts, busines, calender and event informations and more, DroidLife reported on Friday.

For one person using Google Home, “personal results’ must be turned on to hear personal information, like calendar events and reminders.

“If multiple users are using the same Google Home, everyone who wants to hear personal info on Google Home must link their Google Account and voice to Google Home, even the person who set up Google Home,” the search-engine giant wrote on Google Home Help support page.

According to Google, “Routines” will replace the “My Day” feature that users use to access on Google Home, the report added.

Google Home — the voice-activated smart speakers by the tech giant is set to get a little better at multitasking as the tech giant is working to improve features to handle multiple queries for the devices.

Back at Google I/O (Google’s annual developer conference), the company had announced that it was working to improve support for multiple commands like these and make them smarter.

The announcement was recently made on Twitter by Made by Google: “You’re not the only one who can multitask. Now Google Home can perform up to three queries at a time, so you can get more done.”

The tweet was, however, deleted, indicating that the feature may not be ready right now.

Multiple commands have been supported on Google Home speakers for a few months now but the support has been relatively limited.

This would expand Home’s earlier multitasking feature which could handle two things at once.

Adding a third request could save time for people who have a lot of smart home appliances controlled by their Google Home, according to CNET.

The feature will likely work in English-speaking countries like the US, UK, Australia and Canada, the CNET report added. (IANS)
