Google is playing catch-up with Amazon, adding new third-party integrations weekly. The Google Home has been updated to support both Belkin WeMo and Honeywell Smart devices. This means that users will be able to request Google Assistant to switch on the thermostat or lighting fixtures utilizing voice commands.
Google Assistant currently supports an array of third-party devices, including the Nest Learning Thermostat and Philips Hue Light Bulbs. This integration will provide Belkin WeMo and Honeywell customers with the same level of control.
The Honeywell Lyric Thermostat is a big competitor of the Nest Learning Thermostat. Now, they will have something in common, voice automation capabilities.
In the future, Google has plans on updating its Pixel smartphone, so users will be able to control their Smart Home gadgets with Google Assistant.
