Google has quietly added a great new feature to the Google Home lineup: Sleep Timers. According to an updated support page from the company, you can now set timers to play music for a specific duration of time as you prepare for bed or have Home play that lullaby for the little ones. As with most Google Assistant commands for Home, it is pretty easy to setup.
The most basic way to setup a sleep timer with music is to say, “Hey Google, play (artist/genre/playlist) for (duration)”. If you are just wanting a sleep timer, just say, “Hey Google, set a sleep timer for (duration)”. You can also set up a sleep timer to stop at a certain time (say, 9:30 p.m.). It is actually quite flexible in how you set up the timers. While these fall under the category of sleep timers, you can use them for other purposes. For example, you could set a time for 30 minutes with mediation music as you meditate in the morning. Once the music stops, you know your session has ended.
