Home win

Computer Shopper - - LETTERS -

I’m pleased to see you’re cov­er­ing the grow­ing world of home au­to­ma­tion. I think David Lud­low slightly mis­in­formed read­ers, how­ever, by say­ing in Shop­per 359 that Google Home can­not be ex­panded with skills in the way as Alexa.

But of course it can, with Google Ac­tions. In ad­di­tion, Google of­fers a range of tools to al­low users to de­velop their own Ac­tions, some suited to de­vel­op­ers and other tools suited to en­thu­si­asts.

I man­aged to set my Google Home to re­spond in a de­fined way when I speak cer­tain phrases.

I would love this to be a topic for Ad­vanced Projects. Com­puter Shop­per could even ex­pose its con­tents as a Google Home Ac­tion, so I could say ‘Ask Com­puter Shop­per mag which edi­tion has an ar­ti­cle on qubits’. Michael Waite
