Google Now There are many features that are ideal for families, especially those with smart speakers and displays. Family Bell allows you to plan messages to keep your house smooth. We will show you what he can do.
What is Google Assistant Family Bell?
Google’s Family Bell lets you create custom messages and interactive checklists on a schedule. Messages can be delivered to smart speakers and displays with Google Now enabled, as well as Android devices.
Creating messages is easy. You enter a message that you want Google Assistant to announce, select the time and days for the message, and then select the devices on which to play.
Interactive checklists are a little different. It starts in the same way as regular messages, but then you can add items to complete. Google Assistant will guide you through the list as you check items on the display or with your voice.
Why you should use Family Bell
The family bell is an indispensable tool for keeping your home working with routines. There are many different things you can do with it, but I will share a few examples from my personal use:
Going to bed with children can be a challenge, but having a routine to stick to makes it a lot easier. Every night before bed, Family Bell reports that there are “5 minutes until cleaning time.” This gives my son time to finish whatever he is playing and starts our night routine.
Speaking of bedtime, this is a great use for checklist function and You can make a list of things your kids need to do before bed. Go to the bathroom, brush your teeth, put on your pajamas, etc. They can tick off the elements themselves and feel complete.
Morning is another good time for routines. I have a Family Bell set up for weekday mornings that says, “It’s time to put on your shoes.” This ensures that we do not lose track of time and get to school late. You can also create a checklist for morning preparations.
Not just for children
What I really like about Family Bell is that it takes some responsibility off my shoulders. I don’t have to watch the clock every morning and evening. I can be present with my son and let Google tell me when it’s time to do something.
There are so many things to remember in one day that taking a few of them off your plate can be a big help. This is not only convenient for people with children. Maybe in the morning you easily lose track of the weather. The bell can help you get out the door on time. Or maybe you have a task that you only need to do once a week. The bell can help you remember it.
All in all, this is just a convenient feature for the smooth operation of you and your household. Relieve your mental strain and let Google Assistant handle some of your routines. It’s there when you need it –not when you don’t. You will thank me later.
