The minimum supported version of Home Assistant is 0.65.6.
The Google Assistant integration allows users to control the entities via the Home Assistant Smart Home skill for Google Assistant. This means that you can say things like “Ok Google, turn on the kitchen light” to control your local Home Assistant.
To use this integration, you need to have:
- The cloud component set up. Learn more
- A Google Assistant enabled device like the Google Home or a mobile phone running Google Assistant.
- Activated the Home Assistant Smart Home skill for Google Assistant.
- If you have a Google Home device, use the Google Home app, select Home control, and then add hass.io using the Add devices option.
- If you only have a mobile phone, launch Google Assistant, select the three dots menu. Under Settings you’ll find Home Control. There you can add hass.io using the Add devices option.
You can use
configuration.yaml to configure the entities that are being shown to Google Assistant and how they are exposed.
