‘Hey Google, good morning’
Ask this at the start of the day to find out what’s coming up in your calendar, get reminders and to check the traffic for your commute. Google Home works with your other Google devices, so you can send directions to your laptop, call your contacts or ask Google Home to read out recipe instructions from your phone.

So when you say ‘Hey Google, good morning’, you’ll get a personalised schedule and reminders for the day.
