Google Assistant is part of Android, and it helps us perform a wide range of tasks hands-free. Also, Assistant routines will make our day even better. It allows us to create a set of actions, which we can trigger with a single command. Assistant routine works on Android phones, Smart speakers, and Smart displays, so here is how to use it in Android.

The Clock app on Android has the Assistant routines feature. You can create or add pre-made tasks/actions to start them when dismissing your alarm. For example, you can use your phone to say about the weather, read the news, let you know about the calendar, turn on the smart bulb, play Spotify songs, and more.


Once you set up a routine, and when the alarm goes off, the Clock app will trigger the Google Assistant routine you set before. Here is how to create actions and use the Clock app on Android phones to activate it.
