Google is now releasing two helpful features for the google assistant Google Assistant to look up TV schedules and set music alarms.
google assistant can now set alarms to music and look up TV schedules.
If you want to set an alarm to music, you used to have to store the song you wanted on your device. Now, you can just tell the Assistant to “set an alarm for 5AM that plays Ed Sheeran,” and it’ll wake you up to whatever artist, song, or playlist you asked for.
The alarms work with whichever music service you’ve set the Assistant to use by default, so Spotify and Pandora, for instance, can both be used. You’ll also be able to use any songs uploaded to your Google Play Music library.

and the other feature to look up TV schedule is about as straighforward as it sound, you ask “when is The Crown on next”. and it’ll tell you when the next new episode or rerun is going to be.
You can also ask “which channel airs Broadchurch?” to get channel information and play time for the next new episode.
Both questions mostly work, though results didn’t come up correctly for every TV show I asked about, even when Google heard me correctly.
Cool. isn’t it?
