Routines will be available in the coming weeks, as well as setting location-based reminders from Google Home. Discovered by 9to5Google after they tore down a past APK for Insights. Routines will be set from the Google Assistant settings page, Google notes that users will be able to use six routines “that help with your morning, commutes to and from work, and evening at home.” Routines work on both Google Home smart speakers and your phone.
