A voice assistant for your smart home is only as good as the devices it can control. If your voice assistant can not work with half of your smart home, you will be frustrated. Although Google Assistant joined the smart voice control game after Alexa, it is growing quite fast. Now Google says it works with over 50,000 smart home devices.
There are 50,000 smart home appliances over 5,500 different “popular brands”;. As discovered by Android Police, the news comes to us via a Google help page. Fifty thousand smart home devices are an explosive growth from only 1,800 Google toutes in early 2018.
What we do not know is how the distribution is, from brands to types of devices. There are many smart lamps and plugs to choose from, but not as many sensors. But all that really matters is that there is a good chance that Google Assistant (and your Google speakers) will work with whatever smart device you buy. In addition to smart locks. Give us integrated controls for all our smart locks, Google.
