Google Updates Assistant’s Home Controls On Android

Google has lately been adding new material design to most of it’s Apps. With Google Assistant, we saw the new ‘visual snapshot’ feature that helps you plan your busy schedule with ease. Now, the latest feature being included is the the brightness and temperature slider for home controls.

The new feature works as follows:

When you ask for the brightness of a connected light to change, Google does the action, then provides a brightness slider for you to manually adjust it further. The same applies to thermostats and the temperature. The interface also offers a “turn off” button for lights and “+” and “-” buttons for temperature.

The feature is limited to Google smart displays now and we expect it to rollout across smartphones soon.
