Google has spent the last year trying to improve its smart assistant Routines, the single-command shortcuts that trigger multiple changes across your home. Earlier this year, the company announced one-tap My Actions buttons that let you start Routines from the Google Home app. And now, Google is quietly rolling out a Delay Start feature that lets you adjust when specific actions within your Routines start.
After spending so much time indoors, it may be hard for families to build new routines for the 2021 to 2022 school year. That’s why Google is rolling out a slew of new features for Nest Hub and Google Assistant, including a major update to the popular Family Bell reminder tool.
