Google has announced a new Google Assistant feature that can help people who are working from home during the novel coronavirus pandemic. However, it might be not possible for Google to recreate the usual office routine such as coffee breaks, catching up with colleagues, and more such regular activities, but it has developed new Google Assistant features that can help you while you are working from home.
Google is going to roll out a new work routine for Google Assistant. It will help the users in reminding them of all the things happening at work. It will be available on both Android and iPhone, and the users can enable it in the settings. The new Google Assistant will include a lot of features, for example, if you are working from Monday to Friday, it will remind you throughout your working days like, at 10:00 AM, you will get a message on your smart speaker or display on your phone screen saying “ It’s time to grab a cup of coffee.” The Google Assistant will also regularly remind and share the time with you to maintain the daily routine tasks on time.
Here we will discuss how the Google Assistant will help in maintaining the daily routines while working from home.
The new Google Assistant will help the users in following a new routine that will focus on their workday schedules. It will remind them of everything that should indeed happen during the day. One of the best parts of this feature is that it is customizable, and therefore, the users can set their breaks and schedules. In this way, the users can feel a similar working environment as in their office where all the regular breaks happen naturally.
The new Google Assistant will also include a Gentle Sleep and Wake feature that will allow the users to coordinate their smart lights with sleeping schedules and morning alarms. This will help the users in improving their gentle sleeping habits. You just need to set a reminder for your particular sleep-time, and the lights will be turned off by Google Assistant. The command is “Hey Google, sleep my lights at 10:00 PM.” The Google Assistant will not only help in turning off the lights at night but will also help the users by turning them on in the morning at your desired time. The command is “Hey Google, wake my lights at 8:00 AM.” All the users who already have Google Assistant alarms can say “Turn on Gentle Wake Up” to brighten the smart lights 30 minutes before your alarm goes off.
While you are working from home, Google Assistant will allow you to add new entries to your calendar, start to-do lists, and set reminders. All of these tasks can be performed via voice. The new Google Assistant can also help you in remembering important dates and events such as anniversary, meeting, or it can be your Wi-Fi password. The Assistant also allows the user to turn on Do Not Disturb mode via a simple command: “Hey Google, silence my phone.” However, there are various options available in the new Google Assistant to customize your actions, setting your schedules, but the routine will be available only in English.
After exploring and discussing the fantastic features of the new Google Assistant feature, we have concluded that this feature is one of the best features of the Google Assistant and will surely help a lot in several ways while working from home. It will not only make the task easier for the user but will also create an office-type working environment at home.
