Google Home just became the flawless sous-chef for your kitchen


It can now read recipes out to you while you cook, one step at a time. All you have to do is launch Google Assistant on your Android phone or call it up on Google Search.

That's only in theory, however, as Google is positioning the current state of this SDK as appropriate for people who want to "start building [their] own hardware prototypes" rather than as the kick-off for commercial availability.

When you're ready for the next step, say, "Ok Google, what's step two", or if you need to repeat something, say, "Ok Google, repeat".

Google Home now serves up numerous guided recipe instructions. This paves the way for a slew of new devices beyond the bounds of Google Home and select now supported Android devices.


The recipes come from a number of the world's top food media outlets, including the New York Time, Food Network and more.

Put simply, this new software development kit enables developers and creators to bring Google Assistant in all its functionality and glory to their own hardware projects. This will ensure that the recipe gets saved to the Google smart speaker to be used now or later. The company also revealed that apart from reciting recipes with the aid of the Google Assistant, the smart speaker would be able to play music and perform all its normal activities. According to the release notes, you can't set alarms and timers, for example. Moreover, these tasks will not interfere with the recipe recitation. Today Google has started rolling out a new feature for budding culinary masters with the new "Start Cooking" command.

Google Home has finally arrived in the United Kingdom, bringing a number of exciting new features to the connected home.
