If you are one of those with several smart devices or applications linked to the Google Assistant voice commands, there is an easier option to handle them. During the configuration of your smartphone you can create groups that Google calls rooms to facilitate the work.
Do you forget where you park? Google Assistant wants to solve this
The halls make voice commands easier
With this option of grouping on your mobile you can enable more commands with fewer words. Instead of saying turn off the light 5 times for each one you have in the room, you can make a room that includes only the lights of the room and order Google turn off the lights of the room and the assistant understand the association.
How to add a new device to the room
one . To add, open Google Assistant and select "Home Control"

Add existing devices to rooms
Open the Google Assistant application and scroll down to find a list of devices that are not in the rooms. Touch any device to add it to a room.
Touch "Add to room" at the bottom of the screen.
Choose the appropriate starting location. You probably only have one house, so tap it and then touch the «Next» button.
Then, click on “Move device”.
If you have more than one account associated with your "home" (for families, etc.), everyone will have access to the device. If you ever move the device to a new home, all members will lose this access. Google is trying to make this clear with the message "It affects access for household members." It is something to take into account with a familiar configuration.
Touch the room with which you want to associate the device and then touch «Next».
If you don't see a room label that you like, scroll to the bottom of the room options. Touch the "Custom room" option, provide a label that you like and then touch "Accept."

Grouping your devices in rooms means that you can control them by referring to them. If you have your mobile grouped in a room labeled "bedroom", you can say "Hello Google, turn off the bedroom" or "turn off the bedroom lights" even when Google Home is in another part of the house.
Keeping devices grouped in rooms will not only keep your Google Assistant application better organized, but also make it easier to work with your devices.
