Google today announced Home Assist, a Google Assistant assisted Echo Show competitor, which serves as a visual dashboard for all smart home devices, along with a variety of features. We also updated the Google Home app for Android and iOS when designing the Home View dashboard.
The new home app is now just a way to recommend movies to play with Chromecast or as a way to set up your home mini. Your app has been improved so you can quickly control multiple devices, like your own home or parent, so you can get better technical support from a remote location.
You can now show all your devices in the app. Organize them into one room in one view. You can access Google Assistant from apps and manage devices like Nest Thermostat or Tint Smart Lite. This week the update will be available on Android, but it seems to be available on iOS.
