Google clock now supports Google Assistant Routines (Trigger HA when you turn your Android alarm off)


#1

So I have been trying to set something up that isn’t time dependent for when I get out of bed during the work week. I have done several things over the years including tasker when I unplug my phone, bed scale using and esp8266 and a load sensor, and just a set time trigger. Well some time in the last couple months Google added the ability to trigger a Google Assistant Routine when you turn your alarm off. There is a Hass.io integration for Google Assistant (If you are using Home Assistant cloud) which exposes your Home Assistant entities that you have defined in your cloud config. I exposed an input boolean that I called work_day_alarm which automatically gets turned on at 12:01 on work days and then have Google Assistant turn it off in the morning.

I got all excited about this so downloaded the Google Clock app this morning…only to find that it doesn’t have the Google Assistant Routine function :unamused:


#3

Just looked it up, and saw something about having to reboot after you install it to have it show up? Have you tried that?


#4

I just rebooted my phone… no change in the Clock app unfortunately


#5

And you are sure you are using Clock by Google LLC? Even the description in the play store says Google Assistant Routines were added.


#6

Which version do you use?
I am running 6.0 and do not have the google assistant option.

#8

That is odd. I do have the same version.
Maybe it is because of me being in Germany.

I’m in Australia so also wondering if its a location issue. Might have to wait for the GA function to roll out here…

EDIT: however, looking at the app in the play store it definitely says it has routines… its version 6.0 (Google LLC)


#10

Can either of you manage your routines in the Google home app? Can you access devices in there as well?


#11

I can, yes


#12

Same here, I am in Australia
Nokia 6.1
AndroidOne with Android 9
Google Clock v6
Restarted
No routines!
Oh well, something to look forward to…


#13

I am in the US so I guess maybe they rolled it out here first? Hopefully you guys get it soon.


#14

What I don’t understand is why the version I downloaded (same as you) says it has GA integration, yet the app doesn’t appear to. If it was a location roll-out issue surely we would be on a lower version number and the description wouldn’t mention GA… Hopefully soon :crossed_fingers:


#15

There are other things that control the rollout besides the actual app. They could be using server side configuration to limit the users by region. But yes, hopefully soon.


#16

I got it in Australia now.
Possibly with the 2019-02 security update.
Need to try it out soon

This works in Germany as well for a few weeks now.
