Google Home integration

Any plans for integration with Google Home? There is integration with Echo/Alexa and looking to see if that similar functionality will be available for Google Home.

Any Eta? I think that it will work better with google assistant .

+1 Google Assistant support is ideal. I’m holding back on going all in with Simple Control because it only supports Alexa, and I prefer Google Assistant.

Hi Will. Really excited for upcoming google assistant support. You think it will happen this year?

Is there any info on if Google Home support is coming? I recently switched from my Echos to Google Hubs and I couldn’t be happier. I’m using a work around to have my ISY trigger Simple Control activities, but it can be a little slow sometimes. Full integration would be great!

Just wondering if there is any movement with GH integration? I’m considering going deeper with my SC/ISY/GH setup, but I’d rather wait if if GH support is coming.

Thanks

We finished Google Home support, but then it got entangled in the lengthy and painful approval process for such skills that we just don’t have time for right now. I think for this year most likely we will continue to focus our efforts on Alexa and Siri. I would anticipate a number of key improvements on the Siri side this Summer from Apple that we will support, and adopting Siri is quite simple for our entire user base whereas the synergy of adding Google Home support is more like adding Android support. We could do it, it would attract new users, but it’s really not the best choice for most of our existing users, and in the end takes away resources from providing the best targeted solution. Anyway it’s all just a matter of priorities right now.
