I’ve managed to find how to set up a routine on my Google Mini. 

I’m hoping to use these for whenever I’m away, however I’m unable to find how to set the period of time. I’ve done some test runs this week so the radio comes on at certain times, but I want to control how long it will be on for, or find out how long it stays on for, as I will not want it on all night. 
Hoping to find some answers, 
Thank you

Hi Sophie,
You can do this by using a custom routine event and type the command out with a set amount of time e.g. "Play Radio X London for one hour".
Linked below is the Google Nest help center page about using routines.
Let us know if you have any further questions.
