    Hi All,
    Newbie here,love using tasker but still trying to get a handle on it,
    Can someone provide step by step instructions on how i can set up to get autocast to tell time to google home every hour?
    Iam based in Melbourne,Australia, so not sure if google home has all the permission of tasker?

    Ok, to start of, are you able to use the AutoCast Speak action to make it say something on your Google Home?

    Great! :) To do that, use a Time context in Tasker and make it trigger every hour. Then in the task just use the AutoCast Speak action to send the current time to your Google Home. Hope this helps!

    You could use the AutoTools Time action to format the time. Use the format

    Code (Text):
    hh:mm a
    for a 12 hour format. Hope this helps!
