Google Home Integration


#1

Hi! Will the Yeelight bulbs have Google Home intergration in the future? I’ve noticed that using IFTTT is quite sluggish sometimes. Thank you!


#2

Yes, as soon as Google Home release its API, we will support it.


#3

Hasn’t the API already been released? Has the integration been done yet?


#4

No and No.


#5

But what about this…


#6

The API is not designed for SmartHome, we can use this API of course, however, it’s very complicated and took lots of effort.


#7

Oh okay ): that’s unfortunate. But I can still use Google Assistant and IFTTT to use voice commands, correct?


#8

Yes you can use IFTTT to use voice commands to control Yeelight.


#9

I think you should contact Google and work with them to add Yeelight. They just added 4 more companies to Home. https://twitter.com/madebygoogle/status/855473736618831872
I think public API is not coming in near future.


#10

We have contacted them several times, but no response at all. I think they are only considering work with some big players for now. It’s really disappointing and frustrating.


#11

Looks like it could be done by May this year after Google IO 2017, documents were updated.


#12

We are working on it.


#13

Waiting for any good news as I just found out I can use google assistant to control my smartthings and Philips hue
Ifttt works only for one bulb at a time it seems I need to control one pair at a time or a group


#14

Actually it works with more than one bulb, just set up a scene


#15

Yes for a scene but I want toggling on and off for a group of bulbs actually I am using that with smartthings


#16

You can setup a scene with all bulbs off and another scene with all bulbs on.

BTW, google home is on the way.


#17

Meaning Google Home and Yeelight integration is coming?


#18

Yes,we are working on it


#19

any estimation on when?
