Google Assistant Is Compatible With Over 5000 Smart Home Devices

Now, it will be able to read out answers instead, much as the Google Home smart speaker can. We're also making it easy to turn any TV into a smart TV with Chromecast, so you can easily control what you're watching with the Google Assistant from smart speakers like Google Home.

"Over the past year, we've made great progress ensuring that the Google Assistant can work with all types of connected devices, and now every major device brand works with the Assistant in the USA", the company said in a blog post.

Google Assistant is already on over 5,000 devices, and smartwatches are some of them.

Currently, Assistant on Wear OS only displays information on the screen. Google Assistant has been available on Wear OS (formerly Android Wear) for a while, but today we have learned that it has received an update that helps you to get more done when using it on your smartwatch. The new Wear OS skills revolve around Google Assistant, which Google first brought to Wear OS (then known as Android Wear) previous year.

Notable new integrations include Google control over the DISH Hopper receivers, so that you can say "Hey Google, play [channel] on the Hopper", and it'll tune your TV to the right channel. Google notes that is aimed at providing quick interactions, and similar to how Assistant works on phones with a carousel of suggestion chips at the bottom of every screen. These are actionable commands that you can program to trigger other smart home devices.

It's going to be a big week next week at Google I/O, and we've got everything crossed that we'll see a lot more worldwide announcements so stay tuned for what's coming up. Google has made significant progress in ensuring that Assistant works with all kinds of connected devices. The EPICKA Mini WiFi Smart Plug does everything the big-brand models do, but with one key difference: it costs $9.99 instead of $29.99.
