Multiple Google devices

Community Member

The last Google event I watched they were really pushing this Google environment, having devices for just about everything. A lot of which use Google assistant. I'm all for it. But some simple things seem to be an afterthought. Such as basic settings...

I'm not a programmer or generally tech inclined, which is why I dove headfirst into Google integration in the first place. Pixel 2, 4a, 6, 7, nest hub, mini in every room, wi-fi, pixel watch...thermostat soon, you get the idea.


want to be able to specify which device I want to respond or do the action using Google assistant.  


Example a) I am in my car with my pixel 7 and my watch on. I want my phone to be the priority.

Example b) I am in bed with the Google nest next to me. My phone is in-between myself and the nest. And the watch is on my wrist. I want to set an alarm on my watch (the vibration wake up is more pleasant on my wrist than audio, highly recommend). I want the nest to control my routine.

The sensitivity setting is not an option. As I want them all to be prioritized for different things. I do not want to be fiddling with settings multiple times a day.

This is not a wi-fi or network setting issue. Prioritizing which device on there is not my issue. 

I've also seen responses about broadcasting. This is also not the problem I am experiencing.

Is this an update or something that is coming down the pipeline perhaps? I feel like it should've been setup before launching... 

I want to constantly keep integrating Google products into my life. They work wonderfully, which is why this baffles me.

Please simplify this.
