I connected my Google Home Mini to Roblox

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.

Final result:

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


I don’t know whether to be in awe or terror by this. Either or, I like what you created here and am excited to see what other crazy things you’ll be able to make it do


This has given me a tremendous amount of ideas for tasks I would otherwise have to do manually if I was on mobile or away from home, which are mostly a hassle. Thanks!


Would it be possible to make the Google home device say “OOF” whenever your character’s health reaches 0?


That’s really cool man, perhaps you could do an in-depth tutorial on this, this has some pretty neat use cases!


Indepth tutorial please! This is uber cool. Would love to see if I can hook it up to the Alexa in our room.


If I am understanding the OP, this is pretty much how it works.

It is pretty cool but it doesn’t seem practical to me. The things I could think of it being useful for probably should be an admin panel instead of a voice command (ex: “Alexa, restart the servers”).

wow look’s amazing now only if i could tell a bot to script my games for me

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).

Imagine hooking this up with messaging services to send announcements. The possibilities… Great Job!

Oh my… this is amazing! Can you make the Alexa tutorial? That would be so useful! When I saw the video, I was in amazement! This is so cool!

There is a tutorial literally 6 posts above. Please check the rest of the thread.


i dont think cause we cant make them say something if we dont ask him

No, you can’t make your Google Home or Alexa say anything, I believe it can only speak on voice command.

Yeah, that is a voice command. Like I said :slight_smile:.

This is cool! You inspired me to make something like this with my own google home :slight_smile:
