Android TV Will Be Added To The “Routine” Google Assistants. Google announced an early update to the work of the virtual assistant. Smart TVs with Android TV will be part of a feature called Routine.
This feature, presented in 2017 and introduced in the Google Assistant last year, helps a person to “revive” smart gadgets in the house with one team. For example, if you say the phrase “OK Google, good morning!” In the morning, this will start a pre-planned chain of actions.

So, a “smart” coffee maker will brew morning coffee, and Google Assistants will report the weather forecast, information about the status of traffic, and so on. Initially, this service worked on Google Home and Home Mini smart speakers. And soon, devices with Android TV can be included in the list of devices.
As the developers explained, in this case, the user will also need a “magic phrase”. If the word “Showtime” was spoken, the Assistant Google will launch the Routine for Android TV. In this case, for example, the light goes out, and the smart TV starts the thriller selected by the user.
