If you have sleep problems, start with "Hey google, I can not sleep." It will respond with a few options – nature sounds, background music, or sleepy playlists to help you fall asleep. The only one that does not help yet: nightmares.
Things you can say aboutto get tired:
"Hey google, play relaxing music."
Google finds a playlist of ambient music sounds on YouTube Music, Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora, or Deezer if you have an account (otherwise all these services have free options). If you like the playlist, open the music app to save it. You can link your media accounts when you set up your speaker or at any time through the Google Home app.
"Hey Google, play relaxing nature sounds."
You can ask the question a few times until you are satisfied with the desired sound. Some of the options that I came across were rain, a babbling brook, crickets and chirping birds. But watch out for the sound of the water at night, unless you also want to take a break from the toilet! Google Home can also play a playlist of nature sounds from your linked music apps.
"Hey google, tell me a bedtime story."
I'm a fan of falling asleep on podcasts or TV shows. If your little kid finds it hard to catch a couple of Z's, try Google Home's bedtime story option. The stories are child related but can create background sounds for children of all ages to drift off to. The Google homepage features short stories from Google Play Books and Storynory. You can sort 3- to 10-minute fairy tales, curious stories or short films about popular TV characters like Dora the Explorer.
"Hey Google, sing me a lullaby."
As another way to help children prepare for bed, Google can sing or play a lullaby. Here you will find classics like Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, a German Lullaby and Rock-a-bye Baby with a revised (less violent) ending.
