You can now directly call Tasker tasks from your Google Assistant! 😁
Run Tasks Directly by Name
By simply saying
Ok Google, run my task in Tasker
(where my task is any of your tasks’ name) you’ll be able to run any of your existing Tasks with your voice!
You can also say something like
run my task with something and other
to set %par1 to something and %par2 to other when calling your tasks if you want.
Instead of run you can also use any of these words:
Setup profiles with the “Assistant Action” event
If you want more control over your voice commands you can setup profiles with the Assistant Action event and there you can filter you command any way you like using Tasker Pattern Matching.
You can use this to receive variable inputs for example. You could have a command like
run turn off my bedroom lights in 5 minutes with Tasker
and then parse that out and have Tasker wait 5 minutes and after that turn off your bedroom lights.
Assistant App Actions is a feature Google allows apps to have in English only for now. I’ll add support for other languages as soon as App Actions allow it.
Calling your tasks with your voice has never been easier! Enjoy! 😁
