Google Home Adds Support for 34 New Actions, Including Domino’s And Todoist

Google Home can perform various Actions when you tell it to do, but they were kind of limited or not much until now. Today, Google updating the device and it is receiving support for more Actions, including compatibility with 3rd-party services such as Domino’s pizza, WebMD, The Bartender, and many others. 





Let's take an example of the new possibilities, ordering from Domino’s is now easy, with the following command getting you a pizza lickety split – “OK Google, talk to Domino’s and get my easy order.” You can even track your order via Google Home with the command “OK Google, talk to Domino’s and track my order.”


Google also added few games like Akinator (the 21 questions game), SongPop trivia, 21 Blackjack, and Trivia Blast.

Some apps, such as Todoist, will require a user to link their accounts in order to make voice commands work. For the most part, though, the Actions should work without any enabling or account linking.

Here’s the complete list of today’s added Actions, 34 in total.
