Last week Google Launched its so called Google Assistant for Marshmallow and Nougat devices. With assistant we can do several stuffs, but ever imagined if we can control our devices remotely using Google Assistant?
Yes! It is Possible.
You can create your own voice commands for Google Home or the Google Assistant on your Android phone using IFTTT.
IFTTT is a separate company from Google. The name stands for “If this, then that.”
For example, if you say:
“It’s time to wake up,” then your automated coffee maker turns on
“I’m running late,” then a text message is sent your family to let them know
“Goodnight,” then your smart lights turn off
Together, your custom phrase and action is called an Applet. To create an IFTTT Applet or use ones that other people have created, follow the steps below.
1. On your phone, go to IFTTT.com.
2. If you haven’t already, sign in or sign up.
3. At the top, tap Search Search. Search for “Google Assistant.”
4. Tap Google Assistant and then Connect.
5. Choose a Google Account to give IFTTT access to. Make sure to choose the account you used to set up Google Home or the Google Assistant on your Android phone. (Learn how to find the account you used to set up Google Home. If you’re using the Google Assistant on a Android phone, touch and hold the Home button and then. The account will be selected.)
Now you are ready to create your own Voice commands for Google Assistant!
