Weather Forecast With Tasker

4

If you want it or not but the weather really controls our lives from time to time. Therefore it is always good to be up to date about it. With Tasker, you can easily follow the weather forecast or even get an update every morning about what weather you can expect.

For this tutorial, you will need Tasker, Autovoice and WeatherACE Tasker Plugin. You also need to install regular Weather Ace app.You can also just skip the tutorial and download the profile at the end of the post. But we would strongly advise reading through the tutorial anyway.

We’re going to make Jarvis say the weather out loud and flash it on screen.

State => AutoVoice Recognized =>Event Behaviour: tick box =>Command: weather today =>Contains All: tick box

The task:

A1: Weather ACE Tasker Plugin [ Configuration:Today’s weather for AUTO Timeout (Seconds):5 ]

A2: Say [ Text:The average temperature will be %weatherace_temp degrees. The weather will be %weatherace_weather_desc Engine:Voice:com.cereproc.William:eng-GBR Stream:3 Pitch:5 Speed:5 Respect Audio Focus:On Network:Off Continue Task Immediately:Off ]

A3: Flash [ Text:The average temperature will be %weatherace_temp degrees. The weather will be %weatherace_weather_desc Long:Off ]

TIP: Don’t forget to open the Weather Ace app and adjust the settings. This will help if this profile isn’t working.

Some extra info about the plugin:
