Philips Lighting, a global leader in lighting, announced that the Philips Hue connected lighting system is a debut partner with Google’s new voice activated speaker, Google Home. The speaker is powered by the Google assistant that answers your questions and helps you get things done. Customers in the US will be able to use Google Home to control their lights. This integration makes Philips Hue the first connected lighting system that can be used with all of the leading smart home platforms.

Not only can you switch your Philips Hue lights on/off using Google Home but you can also dim them, and select your desired light color to create the right ambiance in your home. If you require a light to set the mood for a dinner party, for example, simply ask Google Home: “Ok Google dim my dining room lights to 20%.” Immediately, you will be bathed in a cozy dimmed light to make your guests feel relaxed and at home. Or, if you want a splash of color, you can tell Google assistant to match your living room lights with your favorite sports team’s colors when watching the action on TV, creating a fun game-viewing experience.
