200 Google assistant commands for your Google Home

Google Assistant Commands

The Google Assistant commands list has become pretty big when you see how Artificial Intelligence has evolved over the years. Since its beginning, developers have been feeding smart combinations and better voice recognition.

Some commands have the ability to give the same answer to different questions. It just all comes down to how you rephrase it:

What’s the time?

Time right now

What time is it?

Can you tell me what’s the time?

Thanks to this wide range of different combinations in questions, it is very easy to use Google Assistant! Just ask anything and Google algorithms will figure it out and give you the answer you’re looking for!

In this list, we’ll see how you can take the best of your google home assistant with some of the most useful and amusing voice commands. Or just if you are feeling without ideas of what to ask, feel free to use it for fun!
