It was announced today that the Google Home device can now talk users through cooking over five million different recipes. For this to work, Google partnered with the likes of Bon Appetit, The New York Times, Food Network and other recipe databases.
How does this work?
1. First you need to pick a recipe. To do that, go to the Google Assistant on your Android phone or on Google Search on either iOS or Android and find a recipe. Once you pick your favorite, select the “Send to Google Home” button. That will save the recipe to your Google Home.
2. When you are ready to start cooking the recipe, say to your Google Home “Ok Google, start cooking.”
3. Google will walk you through the process, and at any time you can say “Ok Google, repeat” or “Ok Google, what’s step two?”
Google said you can also just say “Ok Google, let’s make macaroons” or substitute “macaroons” with something else, and Google will give you a recipe to cook without doing step 1.
