Google Home now helps you cook over 5 million recipes

If you need something repeated, just ask and Google Home will repeat the requested step.

You can now pick a recipe using Google Assistant on your Android smartphone or using Google Search on iOS or Android and then send the recipe to your Google Home device.

When you are ready to cook, you will have to give the command "Ok, Google, start cooking" or "Ok, Google, start recipe". For one, you can ask it any of the normal stuff you'd ask your Assistant-powered phone or your Google Home speaker.

And if you have already bought a Chromecast - you can control the content playing on your television with a voice command to your Google Home.

Japan, US test anti-missile ships during joint military exercises
The USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier is headed toward the Korean Peninsula and will hold a joint exercise with South Korea. US President Donald Trump had earlier vowed to send an "armada" to the region over North Korea's missile tests.

Devices like the Raspberry Pi are suggested for initial prototyping, but Google emphasizes that Assistant will run on a wide variety of other platforms as long as they fit the basic requirements. You can keep using Google Home to play music, answer questions and basically do whatever else you might want without interrupting the recipe.

Once this rollout is complete, the device will be able to help you cook, by giving you instructions for any of those recipes. Google has provided step-by-step instructions for getting started along with a few sample projects, and has also established a dedicated Google+ developer community.

Last week, we reported to you that Google Home is now capable of recognizing and responding to six different speakers. Google Home is now much better at helping out in the kitchen. However, Google notes that this is merely a developer preview and there are more features in development, including hotword support and companion app integration, and it also plans to add commercialization capabilities, guidelines, and technologies.
