A smart home device works with you; in fact, it follows you constantly. From dawn till dusk, it listens to your commands and gives your feedback or answers with its artificial intelligence. Instead of sending separate commands to your smart speaker, you can set up a thing that performs multiple actions with a single command. In Google Home, the feature is ‘My Day,’ which includes weather, news, commute time, reminders, calendar events, flight status, and more.
And to know everything in a quick succession, just say, “OK Google, tell me about my day.” The Google Assistant will quickly brief you on your day. Read this tutorial to set up My Day on your Google Home or Home Mini.
