If you haven't placed your Google Home in the kitchen, you may reconsider after you read this.
Google announced in a blog post that Assistant will now give users access to step-by-step, voice-activated guides for more than 5 million dishes through the Home speaker. You begin by searching and finding the recipe you want to learn to make via Google Search or Google Assistant. You simply pick a recipe from several sources on your phone via Google Assistant, select "Send to Google Home" and it'll be waiting there whenever you are ready to start cooking.
It's pulling these recipes from the likes of Bon Appetit and Food Network so there's bound to be something for everyone. If a recipe calls for 4 tablespoons and you only have a measuring cup, no need to panic as Google Home will do the conversion for you - all you need to do is ask. Until now, though, when you asked Google Home for a recipe, it would happily tell you all about it - but unless you are the president of the USA and have the world's greatest memory, you probably forgot more than half of the ingredients by the time it was done.
Then, once you're ready to cook, tell your Home: "OK Google, start cooking" or "start recipe". There is no setup necessary to use the recipe feature, just tell Google Home to start the recipe.
Google notes that not everyone may have access to this feature just yet, so if you don't notice it today, "try again in a few days".
Importantly, you can keep using Home for other things while cooking.
