Philips Hue is a debut partner with Google’s voice platform, Google
Home


EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Philips Lighting, (Euronext Amsterdam ticker: LIGHT), a global leader in
lighting, today 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 percent.” 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.

Google Home will cost $129 and is now available in the US.

Philips Hue is sold across the US and comprises bulbs, strips, spots,
lamps and controls.
