What is Google Assistant?

Google Assistant is an artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant developed by Google, which is primarily available on mobile and smart home devices. Unlike the previous virtual assistant of the company, Google Now may take part in the assistant two-way conversation.

Users primarily communicate with Google Assistant through natural voice, through keyboard input is also supported. In the same nature and manner as Google Now, able to determine assistive internet, set events and alarms, adjust hardware settings on user devices and display information from the user’s Google account. Google has announced that it will be able to detect helpful objects and collect visual information through the device’s camera, and support the purchase and support of purchased products, as well as recognize the music.

Assign your devices to rooms

With Google Home Control, you can control multiple lights as a group, through your smart Things devices in the room. First, add the cell to the Google home console and then assign the device to your cells.

Note: The set-up room at Google Home Control is completely different from the SmartThings app’s room. Google Assistant SmartThings will not be able to recognize the room and to control them by room with Google Assistant, you must allocate your devices to cells inside Google Home Control. Also, routines cannot be activated through a single command for a cell, so we do not recommend adding a routine to the room.

  1. Open the Google Home app and tap the menu
  2. Tap Home Control
  3. Tap on Room

Till now I will write How to connect with Google Assistant. But did you ever think how to give a voice command to Google Assistant?

How to control your connected devices through command?

What are the different commands for different works in Google Assistant?

Let’s read some examples of it. You can copy this for your use.

Give voice commands to Google AssistantHow to Setup Google Assistant with SmartThings

Here are some sample phrases for lighting and switch devices. For the Google Home Speaker, you can use “Ok Google” and “Hey Google”.

“Ok Google, turn lights in the game room green.”
“Ok Google, turn on/off everything.”
“Ok Google, is the patio light on?”
“Ok Google, is the children’s light off?”
“Ok Google, turn on/off all lights.”
“Ok Google, turn on/off all switches.”
“Ok Google, turn on/off everything in the kitchen.”
Ok Google, dim/brighten the lights in the living room.” (This will adjust the brightness by 20%)
“Ok Google, set the bedroom light to 10%.” (Brightness can be modified on a scale of 0-100%.)
“Ok Google, dim/brighten the bathroom light by 50%.”
Note: Google Assistant recognizes “Light,” “Switch,” and “Outlet” like a variety of devices. For example, if you say, “Ok Google, let’s turn on the lights,” it will turn on smart light bulbs but will not turn on a smart light that is connected to the light or other discussions. To control those switches, add the word “light” to the device name or nickname.

Here are some sample phrases for thermostats:

“Ok Google, set the living room thermostat to 70.”
“Ok Google, turn the thermostat up/down 5 degrees.”
“Ok Google, make it warmer/cooler.” (This will adjust the temperature by 2 degrees.)
“Ok Google, turn on the heat/cooling.” (This will change the mode and/or turn the thermostat on)
“Ok Google, turn the thermostat to heat-cool mode.”
“Ok Google, turn off the thermostat.”
“Ok Google, what’s the temperature inside?”
“Ok Google, what’s the thermostat set to?”

Here are some sample phrases for Routines:

“Ok Google, run Good Morning.”
“Ok Google, activate Movie Time.”
Note: Google Assistant will only support routines that will trigger thermostats (US only) and discussion activities, door locking, smart home monitors and modes change. For security reasons, your existing routines do not work with an unsupported device or device but are not limited to: Unlocking lock, disarm smart home monitors and open garage doors, but your existing routines cannot work.
