Wake Up to Your Favorite Music on Google Home and More

HP printers will get voice control soon via Alexa and Google Assistant

Just ask your Home to "set a [music/media/radio] alarm at [time]", and the Assistant will respond by asking what song you'd like it to play. Google Assistant will say, "Good morning, Deidre" (your name here), and give you the weather in your city as well as read the latest news from your customized news sources.

You can now set alarms to whatever artist, song, or playlist you want. Of course, for some content, you will need to have a subscription to a service such as Google Play Music, YouTube Red, or Spotify.

Greg Monroe has been bought out. What's next?

The Assistant can already help you learn about actors or play a TV show, and now it can help you keep up with the TV shows you're into right now. This update also added the ability to use any of the songs you've uploaded/purchased on Google Play Music. For example, if you want to know when Doctor Who will be on, Assistant lets you know when the next new episode is and when a rerun will air.

Anneliese Olson, HP's head of home printing, says that connecting printers with voice assistants is convenient and useful though in the future, HP printers will likely be responsive to voice commands on their own. In other news, Google Play Music subscribers are getting a much-needed feature: you can finally play music you have uploaded to your Play Music library on your smart speaker with today's update. While we are able to ask Alexa to play music from a radio station - BBC Radio 2, for example - as an alarm via TuneIn, we can not get Google Assistant to do the same no matter how we ask.
