Google Assistant- your assistant at home too!

In the past couple of years smart everything has taken off, from smart cars to smart phones to even smart homes, all you need to do is say something like “turn on the lights” and the assistant will turn them on for you. No more have you to worry about switching off the lights or finding that TV remote that does not seem to be in the right place when you go to look for it. In today’s era you have the likes of Google assistant there to meet your every demand.

Using only your voice you can do multiple things in your house or in other words get the Google assistant to do stuff for you. Google has recently reported that many of the major brands in the US have tied up with Google assistant to smart control a house. Google assistant can now be found on 5,000 and counting appliances in a household. The Google assistant can be found on cameras, dishwashers, fridges, thermostats, switches, security systems, ovens and the list goes on and on, basically everything you can think off in the house.

Google assistant in your living room: 

As Google plans on bringing Google assistant to more devices this year, they have started by making your living room a smart entertainment center. You can tell the Google assistant to play music or put on that movie or play that show, all from the comfort of you couch and simply by using your voice.
Google plans on making every TV a smart TV with Chromecast, so now using Google assistant with your TV won’t be a problem, all you have to do is tell the Google home what you want and presto! It is done. Google is also working closely with other TV brands to make Google assistant compatible with the next generation of TVs.

Google assistant your new security- guard: 


Google assistant can even be found in your home’s security system. If you have a nest hello doorbell, then the Google assistant will inform you whenever someone comes, through a chime i to your smart speaker or to your phone. You could even watch whoever’s at the door through your phone or TV.
The Nest product was the first to ship with all these Google features and Google plans on bringing out Google assistant on more security devices later this year.

Google assistant on other gadgets as well: 


As we mentioned earlier, you can switch on almost everything with the Google assistant and you could do this through your smartphone or smart speaker. You could even transform your phone into your very own personal control hub of sorts, when you’re out of the house too.

Google has recently collaborated with Deutsche Telekom’s Magnets Hub and IKEA’s lighting system, which will enable many devices in the household to be activated with the Google assistant. Google plans on tying up with many more brands over the year to bring the Google assistant to more nooks and crannies of the house.
