Google Assistant can already be used with Hue and other smart lights, but the function is limited to using them in combination with alarms and some other functions to turn them on and off.
Now, as pointed out by Android Police and Reddit users, you can schedule lights and other electronic devices to turn on and off at specific times or even general times.
This function works through Google’s “scheduled action” function. For example, you can say “Hey Google, turn on the lights at 7 in the morning.” For example, you can say “Hi, Google, turn on my coffee machine at 8 am tomorrow”, or “Run my sprinkler at 5 pm within a week” to set the time of any day of the day or next week.
Android Police found that you can even set it to turn the lights on or off at sunrise or sunset without confirming the exact time.
This function is working but still needs further improvement. For example, if you say “tomorrow” without mentioning a specific time, it will only confirm the command, but do nothing.
Besides, according to Reddit and Android Police users, Google’s documentation states that you can cancel a scheduled operation, but the feature does not seem to be available yet. However, based on the Google Assistant smart home document, all these functions should be available quickly.
