The Google Assistant Can Now Wake You Up with Your Favorite Song

The Google Assistant Can Now Wake You Up with Your Favorite Song

You can also set a music-based alarm with your voice via any Google Home device.

Google Home is a voice controlled smart speaker with Google's digital assistant (just called Google Assistant) built-in. To create a musical alarm, just say "OK Google, set an alarm for 6 am that plays Despacito"... or another song if you're sick of hearing Despacito. Once that alarm time rolls around, you'll get tunes instead of an obnoxious, head-ache-inducing noise, unless you do choose Kidz Bop. This way, you can ask questions like "when does Bob's Burgers come on?" or "when's the next new episode of The Blacklist?".

While more and more appliances feature connectivity, it can be hard to tell which ones work with Alexa, Google Assistant, Nest, and the like, let alone what these integrations actually do.

Google today updated the Assistant with a new ability.


If you use Google Assistant, your options to get its attention are pretty limited: either "OK Google", or "Hey Google".

The second feels like a feature that should have been there since the beginning.

Google Assistant now supports streaming music from providers like Pandora, Spotify, and Google Play Music. Google also said that it's added support for songs uploaded to your Play Music library.
