Gentle wake-up


Wake up every morning with your personal sunrise. Just say, “Hey Google, turn on Gentle Wake Up”. Then every time you set a morning alarm with your Google Assistant speaker, your lights will gradually start to brighten 30 minutes before your alarm to help to wake you up smoothly, instead of pulling you abruptly out of your slumber.2

Sleep my lights


A great night’s sleep starts with setting the right ambiance in your home. Warm, sunset-like shades of white light before bed time can help your sleeping routine. Simply say, “Hey Google, sleep my lights” to start dimming your lights for the next 30 minutes until they’re off.
