    So at the moment I use ifttt to setup google assistant commands to trigger autoremote/tasker to carry out tasks. It works OK although specific words are required which is ok as each ifttt recipe has 3 ways to trigger the recipe.

    I have read about the various api for Google assiatnt as I was hoping that I might be able to do away with ifttt (it has caused a few problems and can be slow at times) as the middle man.. I don't see anywhere that it can be setup to directly do a webhook (http post?) to autoremote.

    I think if this was possible for Google assistant to directly do http post or get then this would be easy to find.

    This is a hobby and not something I am strong in so I'm reaching out here for suggestions of the best way to link my google home to tasker, hoping that things have changed since I begun using ifttt as the middleman.

    I believe I could use autovoice, but this still requires "ok google, ask autovoice" I assume.

    Makes me wonder that even if the Google assistant api allow the http post to happen, would I still need to do "ok google, ask ###" command anyway? Or if I don't publish and just use it on my local account woukd I get away without the extra words... The great thing about ifttt in the middle was not having to do the extra words.

    Maybe I need to consider those extra words to remove ifttt from the solution.

    Yeah, you either use IFTTT or use AutoVoice. More info here.

    Thanks for the reply. Was hoping things may have changed since I begin using google assist at home avout 2 years ago..

    Maybe my focus should go on why the ifttt commands don't always work for my wife.
