Now that you've linked your Google Home with your Out of Milk account, you're probably wondering, "What all can I say with Google Home?"
Well, like with all new technologies, the beginning stages are sometimes a little bumpy and can't do everything you'd like (just remember, with the first iPhone there wasn't an App store and you couldn't even text pictures!) Here are some quick and easy tips so you'll be rocking with Google Home and Out of Milk in no time!
To add an item, you'll first need to invoke the Out of Milk skill. Simply say, "OK Google, talk to Out of Milk." You'll then be prompted to add an item, in which all you have to say is "add milk to my list," for example.
Let's say you want to add multiple items. Well at the moment, you can only add 2 items at a time. More often than not, they'll need to be specific items. For instance, if you add, "milk and bread" Google will recognize that. However, if you say, "add Snickers bar and Ziploc bags" it might get confused an not be able to add it.
Let's say you want to add milk to your list called Walmart and you want to add wine to your list called Whole Foods. To switch between lists, simply say, "Switch to Walmart list" or vice versa. After doing that, you can then add milk to that list!
What if you forgot what lists you have? Well, just ask Google, "What lists do I have?" and it will tell them to you. Pretty neat, right!
Deleting items is super simple. While still in the Out of Milk skill on Google Home, just say, "remove milk," for instance. At this moment, because the skill is relatively new, go ahead and delete one item at a time, as Google will sometimes get confused if prompted to delete several items at once.
- The default list Google Home will add items to is a Google Home list on your Out of Milk app--simply switch to the list you want
- Only lists created by you can be accessed with Google Home
- You can't share lists via Google Home
- You can't add categories or amounts to items using Google Home
