Delay start added to default routines

Community Member

In the default routines, such as commute to work, delay start is not an option. Can this be added? I would like to listen to a podcast for 5 minutes, to music for 5, my audiobook for 5, the news so I'm not doing the same thing the whole drive in. I can create a new routine but can't delete the default ones. Please add this feature to the default ones.

Hey uscgcox,


Appreciate the assistance, Cathal_S.


While you can create a custom routine on your Google Home, deleting the ready-made routines is not possible. We're always looking for ways to improve and we appreciate your feedback. I also suggest that you send feedback using your devices by saying, "Hey Google, send feedback," or by following the steps on this link


Let me know if I can assist with anything else, otherwise I’ll be locking this thread after 24 hours.
