With a phrase or sentence, a series of pre-set actions will be triggered on your device and the other connected devices that are supported by Google Assistant. Since your Google Home device stays at home, Google Assistant will then send you a reminder on your phone once you reached the location, assuming your location services are on. Well, if you're an owner of a Google Home device you're life just got a whole lot easier thanks to Routines.

During last weekend's SxSW Interactive, while the lines were long at HBO's Westworld exhibition, The Google Fun House attracted a fair share of attendees with a indoor and outdoor party that attempted to show the wide variety of things the Google Assistant can do inside and out. Now, if you have your hands full at home, you can do all that through a smart speaker entirely by voice.

There are some limits, it seems, however. What would really be useful is the ability to issue reminders to specific people through Google Home, with not only the instruction but a person whose phone it should pop up on being given explicitly.
These routines will also change depending on who's talking to the Google Home, so if you have loaded your profile it will give calendar alerts specific to your account.More news: Probe corruption charges against Shami: CoA chairman
You will be able to set up multiple actions with just one trigger phrase through Routines. Instead, the Google Home asked when I wanted the full instruction to be issued as a regular reminder.
