If you are a morning person, you will love Google Home speaker because a simple command of Hey, Google good morning will bring out a response consisting the day’s weather, latest news and events that are recorded on the user’s calendar. The only thing users are complaining about is alarm clock because there is no music available as an option but rather a wailing siren tone. This is about to change with the recent announcement from Google Assistant. Waking up early might be hard for many especially if they have a comfortable bed set that will make them want to sleep in.
The new announcement is that users can now use music for their Google Home alarm. They can set their music alarm with just a simple voice command. All they have to say is Hey Google, set an alarm for 7 in the morning and play (this is where you insert the artist’s name). The setup is compatible regardless of the streaming service you have such as Google Play Music and Spotify.
The only challenge is that the voice command is only possible if you choose an artist or band. It is not allowed to set up using a specific song. When you pick only the artist, it brings surprise to your morning as you don’t know what music is going to play when you wake up.
If you want to be woken up by a specific song, there is a little trick you can do about it. First, you must create a playlist with only one song inside and then command Google Home to play that for the alarm. The process can be a little tricky but this is an improvement compared to the previous system. With the old system, the song must be saved online before Google Home can utilize it as an alarm.
If you are prone to sleeping in with your premium and comfortable bed set, choose a song that builds up to make sure that you will wake up in time. Regardless of what you choose, make sure you have a backup alarm in case of internet or power interruption.
