Assist - Talking to Home Assistant
Assist is our feature to allow you to control Home Assistant using natural language. It is built on top of an open voice foundation and powered by knowledge provided by our community. You can use the built-in sentences to control entities and areas, or create your own.
Assist is available to use on most platforms that can interface with Home Assistant. Look for the Assist icon :
- Inside the Home Assistant app in the top-right corner
- On Apple devices via Siri and Assist shortcuts
- On Wear OS watches using Assist tile
Did Assist not understand your sentence? Contribute them.
The Assist icon doesn’t show up? Make sure the conversation integration is enabled. If you use YAML for configuration and have removed
default_config:, the conversation integration may not be included in the config file.
Assist was introduced in Home Assistant 2023.2.
