Routines for Google Assistant let you control multiple smart home gadgets at once, get info about your calendar or the weather, play music or podcasts, and more. These versatile grouped commands are fully customizable and can be programmed to give custom responses as well.

We dive into the routines feature and take a look at custom commands and responses. Routines will work on any device with Google Assistant, including the Google Home smart speaker, the Nest Hub smart displays, smart phones and tablets.
