Ready to cook? Google Home is relaying step-by-step recipe instructions

Time for you to bring your Google Home into the kitchen.

Today, Google announced its home-based digital assistant is now letting users hear cooking recipes from multiple sources. Food Network, Bon Appetit, and The New York Times are among the partners giving Google Home the knowledge it needs to relay step-by-step instructions. And it’s not like this is just a small start. There are more than 5 million recipes you can now get from your Google Home.

Step-by-step recipe instructions from Google Home

Getting started isn’t difficult, and hopefully the recipes aren’t either. All you have to do is launch Google Assistant on your Android phone or call it up on Google Search. From there, you pick a favorite from the results and select “Send to Google Home.” The recipe is sent to your Google Home even if you’re not near it. When ready to cook, you say “Ok Google, start cooking” or “Ok Google, start recipe.” Now your virtual sous chef who isn’t actually touching any food will relay step-by-step instructions to turn ingredients into a meal.

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

Google says the feature is rolling out to all users over the next week.
