so routines can be established even programming seconds apart

Google Assistant routines are one of the most affordable ways to control the various devices in your connected home in an automated way. We can establish routine schedules that are repeated continuously and now also with a delay in periods that are set by seconds.

The Google Assistant already allowed deferred routines, but now the company has gotten its act together and has further improved this functionality by allow schedules with margins of secondswith a delayed start from one second of time.

Google Home now more accurate

It is difficult for someone to program a routine to happen within a second, because when they finish programming it, the routine will already be running. What it does offer is the option to program with more precision in cases where it is necessary to program with seconds of margin or when it is necessary to program different routines with a short period of time. Google Home already offers that option, something they have discovered Reddit users.

To make use of it, simply enter the Google Home application and after selecting the action “Delay start” When creating or editing a routine, you can set not only hours and minutes, but also now there is also a field for the seconds.

Once the routine is created, it appears in the list of actions with a programmed time that appears in the lower area. This function also supports creating multiple delays.

The delayed routines can be applied to those created by users, but not in the default routines provided by Google. We can ask him to turn off the lights when leaving the house, to turn on the heating, to wake us up with music… all the routines that are now created can be set with margins of seconds.

At the time of the test, in my account the function is not yet activeso it is expected that it will be a progressive implementation and that it may still take a few hours until it reaches all devices
