If you have an Android device or tablet that supports Google Assistant, you can use Google Voice Match to give your device commands. Whether you're looking for directions to a specific location, want to set an alarm or calendar reminder, or play music, you can do so by simply speaking the command aloud.
Of course, you'll need to know how to instruct Google to perform these tasks, so here is a list of common commands you can use to get the most out of your Google Assistant-enabled device.
Note: You'll need to say "Hey, Google…" before giving the commands below.
Google voice commands to control music
Google Assistant can not only play music on a linked music app (i.e. Spotify) but it can identify a song that's playing or even turn on a radio station.
- Play music: "Play [artist]" or "play [song]."
- Identify music: "What's this song?"
- Play music radio: "Play [radio station]."
- Read books or watch movies from Google Play: "Watch [movie]" or "Play [audiobook]."
Google voice commands to get directions
Google can use Google Maps to help you find addresses, navigate to certain places, and more.
- Get directions: "Navigate to [place]" or "Directions to [place]."
- Find places near your current location: "Where's the nearest gas station?" or "Where's the nearest coffee shop?"
- Look up travel plans booked in your Gmail account: "What's the address of my hotel in [city]?"
- Find attractions: "What are some things to do in [city]?"
Google voice commands to answer questions
Not only can Google Assistant tell you the date or time, it can also report on the weather, check stock prices, give word definitions, solve math equations, and even answer trivia questions.
- Get the time: "What time is it in [city]?"
- Get word definitions: "What does [word] mean?"
- Math equations: "What is the sum of [numbers]?"
- Weather: "What's the temperature in [city]?"

- Set reminders: "Remind me to [task]."
- Add events to calendar: "Create a calendar event for [occasion] on [date and time]."
- Check calendar: "What's on my calendar for [date]?"
Google voice commands to access account privacy settings
You can ask Google to reveal your search history or open privacy settings so you can adjust them on your device.
- Reveal search history: "Show my Google search history."
- Access security and privacy settings: "Adjust my Google security and/or privacy settings."
- Access account settings: "Open Google account settings."
Google voice commands to talk with friends and family
If you use Google Hangouts or are using Google Assistant on a device capable of making calls, using these commands will help you stay in touch.

- Send messages: "Send a Hangouts chat to [contact name]."
- Send emails: "Send an email to [contact name] with the subject [subject] and message [message]."
