Logitech has announced that Logitech Harmony hub-based products now work with the Google Assistant on Google Home, expanding the capabilities of in-home voice control. Users can control home entertainment experiences using Harmony Elite, Harmony Companion, and Harmony Hub, all with the power of voice.
“Voice has a powerful role in simplifying the connected home experience and people absolutely love it,” said Renee Niemi, vice president and general manager of Logitech Smart Home. “Controlling entertainment is an important activity within the smart home and Logitech Harmony has been focused on optimizing the ways people can enjoy this. By working with Google, we are now able to make home entertainment even more seamless and fun.”
Starting today, users can access Actions on Google with any Harmony hub-based product and a Google Home by saying “Ok Google, ask Harmony to turn on my TV.” For example, users can turn on a TV to a favorite channel, set the lights, or control up to 270,000 other devices supported by the Logitech Harmony platform.
