Google Assistant can now schedule your smart lights


While Google Assistant is perfectly fine and useable when it comes to interacting and controlling your smart home devices, there are some limitations in place. For example, did you know that you cannot use Google Assistant to schedule your smart lights? Instead, all you can do is turn them on or off and change their colors.

Scheduling your smart lights through Google Assistant can be useful, especially if you don’t want to fiddle with your phone and just want to do so through a voice command. It can also help you create more flexible timing, like if you know you won’t be home early tonight, you can schedule your lights to come on at a later time.

These changes were spotted on Reddit as well as a Google support page which seems to point at the feature going live for users. These changes won’t just be limited to smart lights, but it can also work with other smart home appliances, such as smart coffee makers, a smart sprinkler, and so on. By scheduling your actions, it will help automate the process to make your life simpler.

The changes should already be rolling out to users as we speak, so if you do have some smart home appliances that you normally use with Google Assistant, maybe you might want to give scheduling a shot.
