At the time, we were told the feature would be rolling out this week, and Google seems to have just barely made that cutoff. Google Assistant Routine integration into the Clock app is now live.

Google's clock app doesn't get a lot of functional changes these days. It really doesn't need to since it only does a few things and it does them well.

There is also a small change to the icon to discuss, and a teardown reveals that the Clock app is the first to offer direct integration with Google's upcoming feature Routines.

Android N Feature Spotlight: Time Picker Has A New Animation

I imagine this caused some awkward conversations with bosses.
