Google Assistant allows Nest smart speaker or smart display to find users' smartphones simply by saying, “Hey Google, find my phone.” Today the company announced that now users will be able to find their iPhones using Google Assistant. Once you opt-in to receiving notifications and critical alerts from the Google Home app, you'll get a notification and hear a custom ringing sound.

Get your takeout faster

Google Assistant can now help users complete their takeout orders. To use this feature, users will need to first search for a restaurant near them from the Google App on Android and select “Order Online” or “Order Pickup.” When they finish their online takeout order from a restaurant Google partners with and click on the “check out,” Assistant will automatically navigate the site and fill out your contact and payment details saved in Google Pay and synced to Chrome Autofill. This feature is available with select restaurant chains in the US. Google said that it will be adding more restaurants across the US later this year.

Sunrise and Sunset routines go global

Google today announced that its sunrise and sunset routines are available globally now. The company said that these routines are based on a users' location. To use this feature select the “New” routine tab in the Google Home app or Assistant settings > under “how to start” tap on “add starter” option and select “Sunrise/sunset” > from there, you can customise the time and specific actions you want them to trigger.

Ready-made routines

Google has also rolled out ready-made Assistant Routines that make it easy for users to automatically perform multiple actions at once with a single command. The company said that it has included a dedicated section in Ready-Made Routines to highlight popular “suggested actions” to inspire users. Users can also add a “shortcut” icon to their Android home screen for their favourite Routines.
