As a large number of people opt to go with relaxing music to go to sleep or to calm their nerves, Google has decided to go with similar music although its Home speakers support a large number of music. For example, the current music include forests, rivers, oceans, country night time, thunderstorm, rain, or even oscillating fans.

If you are interested in using the service, you will need to use the usual phrase “OK Google” and “Hey Google” to get started with the speakers. Afterwards, you can use the catchphrase “Help me relax” and you will be able to play a random sound from the playlist. Alternatively, you can also choose to ask the assistant to play specific sound and the duration of the sound. By default, the looping audio sound lasts for an hour.

Although Google has confirmed that the latest ambient sound feature for its Home Speaker is available for US markets, users from other markets have started reporting that they are getting relaxing tunes as well.
