Thanks to devices like Google Home and Amazon Echo, we now have hubs that allow us to control multiple things at once from one location, as opposed to before where we might have separate devices for specific things, or have to launch different and separate apps to accomplish tasks.

Now in an announcement by Logitech, it seems that if you own the company’s Harmony devices like the Harmony Elite, Harmony Companion, or the Harmony Hub, it will work with Google Home and Google Assistant. This means that using your voice, you will be able to get Google Home/Assistant to do certain Harmony-specific tasks.

According to Logitech, “Any Logitech Harmony hub-based product including Harmony Elite, Harmony Companion, and Harmony Hub works with the Google Assistant on Google Home by allowing you to easily power on the TV, control the volume, or change channels simply by using your voice. You can also activate your favorite Harmony activity, turn on smart lighting, or control up to 270,000 other devices supported by the Logitech Harmony platform.”

Some examples include turning on your TV to a specific channel, or adjusting the volume, or adjust and control your smart lighting system like the Philips Hue system. If you’d like more details on the features and how to set it up, head on over to Logitech’s website.
