There is a growing number of cooking gadgets and appliances that are becoming more connected than ever. For example there are several sous vide devices that can be controlled using a smartphone, so it’s not really a surprise to learn that the Instant Pot will now support Google Assistant.

For those unfamiliar, the Instant Pot has been gaining popularity at a very rapid pace. While pressure cookers aren’t exactly new, the Instant Pot seems to have revitalized the interest in it due to people starting to discover all kinds of meals that they can make with it. Now with the Instant Pot Smart WiFi model supporting Google Assistant, you’ll be able to operate it using your voice.

According to Dr. Robert Wang, founder and CEO of Instant Brands Inc, “Driving innovation in the kitchen is at the forefront of what we do at Instant Brands. This collaboration with Google shows our commitment to make life a little easier for people, especially when it comes to mealtime.”

The Instant Pot Smart WiFi is already available for purchase where it is currently being sold on Amazon for $136.35. Support for Google Assistant should already be rolling out to users, if not soon, so if you own the gadget already then maybe keep an eye out for the changes if you plan on taking it for a spin.
