As Christmas is approaching, some of our readers will find one of these Google Home appliances (mini or the bigger version) under the tree.
Some of you might know that I like to tinker with software (the interface our clients use to check on their jobs, and the library showing all our jobs have been written by me), I was very tempted when I got a Google Home mini as an early Christmas present.
So I just had to write a bit of software that interacts with the device, and I started off with an application that lets me check what the next job is, what I’m currently working on, and how long the queue is, for use in the workshop. That was quite nifty, and I wanted to develop something for my customers as well.
So here it is – the instructions for set-up are here, and it’s pretty easy to do. The app has just been approved and published (last night), so not all of you might be able to discover it yet, as that can take a day or two.
If you have an iPhone, just download the “Google Home” app, and you can use this feature as well!
Please let me know if you find it useful, and also let me know what additional functionality you would like to see.
