CLEVELAND, Ohio – Oct. 9, 2018 – C by GE and Google are bringing a whole new level of simplicity to smart lighting control. Without the need for an extra hub, you can soon use either the Google Home, Google Mini, Google Max or the new display product, Google Home Hub, to control your C by GE bulbs. Simply screw in a C by GE bulb and make sure one of these Google Home products is on, and the Google Assistant will automatically detect the bulb in the Google Home app. Then just say “Hey Google…” to turn the bulb on and off, dim it or control it otherwise with your voice.
Setting up routines and schedules, as well as controlling lighting away from home, can be done directly in the Google Home app, eliminating the need to toggle between two apps to make updates. While great for new users, this seamless compatibility, made possible through a Bluetooth connection between the products, will also be available to existing Google Assistant and/or C by GE users without the need to purchase any additional hardware.
