    Yep, cool new stuff coming our way. But....what do we do when she says "I'm afraid I can't do that Dave"?

    If you have ever wondered how to hear, and delete, every command & voice search you have used on your Home (or Assistant) The Verge put together an easy-to-follow set of instructions.

    CNET published an article today listing all Home commands. If you want to try something fun later, try some of the Easter Egg commands:

    Easter eggs:

    "OK, Google, always be closing."
    "OK, Google, what is your quest?"
    "OK, Google, I am your father."
    "OK, Google, set phasers to kill."
    "OK, Google, are you SkyNet?"
    "OK, Google, make me a sandwich."
    "OK, Google, up up down down left right left right B A Start."
    "OK, Google, do a barrel roll."
    "OK, Google, it's my birthday."
    "OK, Google, it's not my birthday."
    "OK, Google, did you fart?"

    It sounds like Google is rolling out some more cool new functionality to the Google Home speakers / Assistant. Things like:

    * Broadcast from your phone when away from home and the broadcast is played over all Home devices. Anyone in the house can then reply.

    * Setting your phone to silence using voice commands through your Home device (sounds like this will only work on Pixel 3 phones at first)

    * Character voice alarms

    * Other new functionality to alarms, podcasts, audio books, etc.

    Create your smart home for the holidays with the Google Assistant
