I was laying down thinking of cool stuff to do, and I got the idea of connecting my Google Home Mini to Roblox. If I did, the possibilities would be endless. While going to bed yesterday I think and it seemed pretty simple and so it was. I woke up and got to work. This took me under an hour.
Here is how I did it:
1. I downloaded the IFTTT (if this then that) app on my phone and connected my google account for it to work with my Google Home Mini. 2. I made an API that I could use to set data and one to retrieve data from Roblox. 3. I made a script in Roblox that would check if it should run a script 4. I made two applets in IFTT. One to turn it on and one to turn it off. I set the trigger to Google Assistant and selected “Say a simple phrase”. Then I choose what I wanted to say and what my Google Home Mini should respond. The action was set to webhook web request. I then made it send a request to my API.
My Google Home Mini is set to Norwegian language but IFTTT does not support that and therefore it’s English. And that’s also why it has a Norwegian accent.
Note that this can be done with Alexa too. If you want an more in-depth tutorial be sure to let me know
Wow! That is amazing! I will play around with IFTTT now since I am free :P. I used to use IFTTT to notify me if my phone’s battery dropped under 15% and when my phone is plugged into a charging port and unplugged so in this way I wouldn’t have to leave my chair and go to my living room and check manually (now no longer have to since I finally installed some plugs in my room) (did this through discord webhooks).
