AutoVoice 4.0 combines Tasker and Alexa to automate your entire home

Tasker's a capable tool for power users, but it's not the only app developed by João Dias. AutoVoice is one of the easiest ways to sync your smart home gear with Tasker and Google Assistant, adding custom actions, routines, and more.

Tasker, one of Android's most beloved power user apps, is taking a bit of a snooze. Or at the very least, it's helping you to.

Tasker picks up integrated support to trigger tasks from the Google Assistant

The popular automation app Tasker just picked up a big new feature: The ability to call tasks from Tasker directly from the Google Assistant.

Even more powerfully and flexibly, you can also use Tasker's Pattern Matching to perform actions with variables on the fly. But unlike AutoVoice, this only works on the device that has Tasker installed on it — probably your phone.

AutoVoice Assistant Action is back for all supported languages

Google has taken down the Assistant-integrated AutoVoice Action again, for the second time in a year. This time, the company claims the action "promotes content that advocates hate or violence or promotes discrimination," apparently because someone in Germany stringed together a clearly custom command that made the Assistant spout off some hate speech.
