ADT Pulse now supported by Google Assistant and Home

Thursday, July 26th, 2018

Probably the biggest market for smart home hardware is home security, and ADT's Pulse app brings the company's security products into the future with remote management from the convenience of a phone. Back in May, Home/Assistant support was said to be in the pipeline, and so far as we can tell, it's actually, finally here starting today.

ADT Pulse SmartHome in the list of devices/services of the Home app.

The services page for ADT Pulse SmartHome is now live, giving you the ability to ask the assistant to dim the lights, set the thermostat, or arm security from the convenience of your phone or Assistant-powered speaker.

Google Home and Home Mini now available in Spain, Austria, and Ireland

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

In late May, we noted that a Spain launch for the Home and Home Mini was imminent after the duo showed up on a Spanish retailer's site. That wasn't entirely surprising given that Google had mentioned they'd be coming to Spain sometime in 2018. A few weeks later, the Home and Home Mini are now available from the Google Store not just in Spain, but surprisingly enough, also in Austria and Ireland.

Google invites you to play some mini golf, win some prizes, and learn about Google Home

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Google's pop-up marketing might be limited in scope, but it seems like fun. Last year Google did a donut-related promotion that saw the company giving away bags containing either a pair of the baked goods or a Google Home Mini. Now residents or visitors in New York, Chicago, LA, and Atlanta will be able to enjoy some good old-fashioned Google Home Mini Golf. (Get it? Home Mini, Mini Golf?)

Details are sparse, but google describes it as a "voice (and putter) activated journey," so there may be a bit more to the course than simply tapping a ball around.

Google Home supports navigating touch-tone menus by voice

Friday, May 18th, 2018

Google Home got call support last year, but although we've been able to make use of the hardware's hands-free VoIP support since then, there were a few noteworthy omissions. One of them was touch-tone number entry support for things like navigating automated menu systems. That exclusion has been fixed, as you can now tell Google to "press" numbers during calls. 

We were tipped off about the new feature earlier today, and in our own testing, it works.
