Google Home Improves Controls of Connected Appliances
Two major updates are coming to the Google Home devices – an increase in the direct control a user has over connected smart devices and scene support. Let us take a quick look at both these features:
- Direct Control
Direct Control allows the users to directly talk to their Google Home devices to instruct their smart devices to perform certain actions, in devices that do not support direct control, it used to be a little complex. However, you can now talk to your Google Home and have it control more devices with ease. Companies are now allowed to build in support direct control integrated in their devices.
While Google Home has supported smart lighting systems for a while now, it hasn’t really supported ‘scenes’ which allow users to use multiple lighting effects over different times of the day. However following this recent update, it looks like the support for scenes too, is coming to the Google Home!
