Google Assistant's new voice command syncs smart home devices

11 December 2017 2

There are so many smart home devices available on the market today and if you’re using many of them, chances are, you must be handling them with the help of their respective apps. So, your smartphone is full of so many apps to handle so many different smart home devices. Google Assistant has, however, solved this problem by syncing smart home devices.


The Google Assistant now uses a single command “sync my devices” to refresh all your smart home services so as to be operated from just one place. The new devices that might not be visible to Google Home will then be seen in the connected or compatible devices list.

For instance, if you want to work with the Philips Hue lights and WeMo, you just need to say “sync my lights.” This way you may be able to see your services appearing in the Google Home. So, it will become easier for you to handle every service from one place.

Google Home is compatible with loads of apps and services, including Honeywell, Samsung SmartThings, Philips Hue; streaming devices from Google Chromecast, Vizio, Toshiba, Sony, B&O Play. You can see the list of apps and services compatible with Google Home.
