Hi John

I have experimented with trying to use the fewest words possible to get 
Google to do things. So to play classic FM, just say classic or to play 
one of the main BBC stations just say radio 2 or radio 4. Other 1 word 
requests I often use are. Time, weather, Temperature, and News.

I also have smart switches and a couple of Hue light bulbs which 
certainly have their uses, especially if away from home.

Enjoy, its certainly fun.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
