You Can Now Control Your Thermostat With Your Voice
Ryan Simmons / 3 years ago
The Nest thermostat has received an update which allows it to be controlled via your voice. You can simply ask for a particular temperature and your thermostat will get to work on it.
On an Android device or in the Google app on iOS, you can ask “OK Google, change temperature to,” “set Nest to,” “turn the thermostat to,” to take complete control over the temperature of your home. Nest was founded by the “father of the iPod” Tony Fadell. Tony was Steve Jobs’ right hand man for many years, obviously having a great level of involvement in the conception of the iPod and also with the iPhone. Fadell left the company not long after the iPhone’s debut and set up Nest.
Nest has grown rapidly to become one of the biggest names in the emerging home automation market and was recently purchased by Google, meaning it’s no surprise that Google is interested in using its voice technology to help Nest grow.
