So i got one of these google speaker thingies for free and I was
wondering if anyone has come up with some nifty ham related uses for
them? I've been exploring it a bit but so far the jokes are dad level,
adding things to the shopping list is nice, and asking about the weather
is getting old.

Prefer not inviting Google to be in the house listening it already spends too much time monitoring my online activities. Just sayin.

If you use Google to search for "Google Assistant and ham radio" this is one of the links which you get:

I was looking for more of an assistant in doing hobbies, I kinda like the idea of saying "hey Google, what are the band conditions" or "hey Google, what contests are coming up?"

I need to play around with it and see how much it can help with electronics ("hey Google what's the color code for a 2.2k ohm resistor?")

Also yeah I get it we invited "big brother" to listen to us, but I just wanted to see if I could use it for something useful that's hobby related.

Though if you have it and haven't tried it yet you can say "hey Google add eggs to the shopping list", I found out you can put a link to that list on your phone so when you go shopping you don't need to remember a list!
