Tech giants Samsung and Google have teamed up to bring their smart home platforms together and build a common eco-system. This will allow users to access Google Nest devices using Samsung SmartThings app.
With this, the user can use the Samsung SmartThings to control Google Nest devices. This includes Nest cameras, thermostats, doorbells, and more. Not only that, all this can be accessed via Samsung smart home devices like smart TVs and refrigerators. Moreover, Samsung recently integrated Google Assistant in its smart TVs instead of Bixby. So, does that mean it is time to say adios to Bixby now since the relations between Google and Samsung are getting stronger? We will surely find it out in the coming time.
Apart from that, when the integration will be executed next month all the supported Nest devices will become Works With SmartThings (WWST) certified. This certification is mandatory to control the Nest devices with Samsung’s SmartThings app, TVs, and even refrigerators.
Moreover, Samsung will integrate Google Assistant to ore of its smart devices and all of them can be accessed using the “Hey Google” hotword. To simplify things for non-English speakers, Google Assistant will be available in 6 new languages: Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese.
