No matter how stylish one's decor or impressive one's tech, poor lighting can destroy the effect that homeowners are looking for, so Philips and Google are looking to make home lighting easier with Philips Hue bulbs' integration with the tech giant's smart home range. Philips Hue bulbs are now integrated with the Google Assistant system, meaning that users can control lighting with their voices and with any of the different Google products that run the Assistant.

Google Home in particular is one of the most popular products for Google Assistant integration, and the Philips Hue bulbs indeed work with the home. Setting up the compatibility is as easy as tapping a few buttons on one's smartphone, allowing for hands-free operation.

The integrations stretch far beyond simply turning the lights on and off. With Google Assistant, users can ask to see whether they've left the lights on in a certain room, they can set timers, they can control the color scheme of the room depending on the Hue bulbs installed, and so much more.
