Telling Google Home good night should start sleep tracking

Thank you everyone for supporting this feature request here!
+Robin, shortcuts won't work :(.. with shortcuts you can only substitute long commands to short.. but "Start sleep tracking" was supported in Google Now Voice Actions and is no more supported in Google Assistent which completely dropped support for on device actions for whatever reason only Google understands..
Thank You for Your reply!
That's kind of sad.
But what the Google Assistant does support are "shortcuts" (at least that's the translation from german...). So I can tell the assistant:
If I say "good night" the assistant should "start sleep tracking".
I tried this one out, but it didn't work yet. So maybe that's because my phone is german and the german command would be "Schlafmessung starten"?
It does unfortunately not work with Google Assistant, which would be quite awesome. I don't know how difficult that would be to implement but that would be REALLY comfortable to have.

Needs to be through Google Assistant

I did not test on Google Home, but we had previously Now integration so basically telling Google Now "Start sleep tracking with Sleep" will start sleep tracking, also we support the standard start workout fitness intent and on Android Wear you can use "Start sleep tracking"..
And/Or Google Assistant
