Google I/O is coming up soon so we were sure to hear a few tidbits leading up to the event. Thursday morning, Google announced that the Google Assistant is now supported on more than 5,000 devices…up from 1,500 in January. That is an impressive bump in support and proves the viability of the Assistant in the smart home market.
The announcement itself was part of a post highlighting how to create a smart home using the Assistant. Every major device brand is supported including security companies such as ADT, Vivint, First Alert, Schlage, and August. Even companies like Logitech and Dish are implementing the Google Assistant into their products. Amazon added Alexa support for Verizon Fios earlier this year.
