Hey Google, Schedule Tasks via Voice Command

Users that are in for a busy day do not need to go to their phones and individually set reminders or alarms for different tasks as Google Home would take care of everything that is linked to its systems. "Heater or Airconditioning? "OK Google, Turn off Airconditioning Systems."

Google Home's Brief Mode

Different chimes correspond to various commands or devices that the Google Nest is linked and controls. Targetting a single system may be hard in a network of smart speakers but the Google Home can do it, with a little tweak that asks users to guise it under a "light" setting. Chimes that confirm the command can easily turn it on or off. 

Music and Multimedia Controls via Google Home App
