- Google has blogged about some ways you can take advantage of Google Assistant this winter
- A range of new products now support Google Assistant, including C by GE light bulbs
- Google also highlighted some previously supported devices you might not have checked out yet
Just in time for the holidays, Google has announced some new third-party devices supported by its digital assistant. These were outlined in a Google blog post (via PhoneArena), where Google took the opportunity re-establish some of the previously supported devices and Google Assistant features; essentially, it’s a Google roundup of ways to control your home.
Your Android phone or Google Home can now take advantage of support for C by GE light bulbs for turning the lights on, off and managing their dimming settings in any room. In addition, the Google Assistant supports fans from Bond — should you wish to keep the house even cooler this winter — while Google also singled-out ecobee and Nest for further temperature control (though these have been compatible with Google Assistant for some time now).
Keeping with the hot water theme, Smarter now has a kettle that supports Google Assistant, as of earlier this month, while Whirlpool has a range of supported microwaves and ovens. Meanwhile, LG is still the go-to brand for washers, refrigerators, and dryers.
Finally, those who want an overview of their home can use the Google Home and a Chromecast in conjunction with a connected camera like the Logitech Circle. By asking something like “OK Google, show the nursery on my TV” you can get a live feed of what’s happening.
