Trigger Google Routines

Is there a way to have Home Assistant trigger a Google Routine? The closest thing I have seen is Assistant Relay, but it wasn’t able to do what I needed and looks like it is no longer being maintained.
If it is possible to create the routine in Google Home and then specify that routine in HA without too much difficulty, or without buying another Nest Mini to output voice commands to another Mini, I would like to know how.


Why not use Assistant Relay? It does still work.

Was hoping for a different solution. When I tried it had worked to send to the speakers, but the automation routine when selecting the rest command, there was no option to specify Service Data. I was assuming that it no longer worked consistently anymore.
Maybe I will have to try reinstalling.

Did you ever find a solution to this? I haven’t been able to successfully trigger a Google Home routine via Assistant Relay. Can you explain how you did that if you found a way to do so? Would love to have a handoff from Home Assistant to Google to finish off my morning routine.

Unfortunately not fully. I was able to send a test broadcast but when adding the entity in HA it was not in the drop down. Might be an issue with my config but was unsure of where to go next. I think I will try reverting all the steps and going through the setup guide again to see if there was anything I missed.

If you figure it out, or a better way let me know!

Will do, so far no luck over here.

Any luck finding something?

I haven’t found anything more elegant, but in my automation there is a handoff from TTS over Sonos to a nearby Google Home device, and I just added “Hey Google, good morning” to the end of the TTS message. I use it in the morning, and it’s quiet enough around that this works at least 90% of the time. It’s pretty funny to see it in action though.

This solved my problem…

Are you able to actually initiate routines with assistant relay? A few of us above tried it before but couldn’t find a way to do that. It seemed like a really limited way to use Google Assistant due to some restrictions on usage from Google’s end…
