First thing's first. Set up an IFTTT account, which works also works with Pixel. Choose the option to make a New Applet, search for "assistant" and select "Say a simple phrase." You'll be directed to a screen where you can set up how the AI will respond to specific phrases.

In setting up phrases, be as simple as you can be. See to it that the phrase is easy to say for Google Home to trigger the formula. Try not to use punctuations, since the Assistant will not analyze that. If you already have an idea what to say, you can start programming how Google Home replies to you. According to CNET, a simple "Good morning" can give you a lot of updates if triggered properly.

The final step is to set up "Then That" so the formula would work. Here's how it works: every time you make a command starting with "Okay, Google," Google Home sends you a notification. To enable this option, search for "notifications" and key in your text notifier. Once it's programmed, the IFTTT applet will deliver a notification to your smartphone, which is actually great, especially if you have other people using it.
