According to The Verge you need to mention the name of the day in order to set the schedule in advance. Normally we only say “Hey Google” to open Google Assistant and then say “turn the lights on tomorrow at 10PM” to get it working but this feature requires to be very specific. You will need to say “Hey Google, turn on the lights Thursday at 10PM.”

Schedules can be set for a time duration, like we can say “Hey Google, turn on the lights for 15 minutes”. Also we can set the schedule by “sunrise” and “sunset” times.
