Offering multiple ways to make daily tasks easier, the Google Assistant is also compatible with smart home automation solutions, such as lighting and temperature controls. “With the ascendency of voice assistant enabled solutions in the home, evolving our premium home audio series to support the Google Assistant was at the forefront in product development plans,” says Bryce Craig, Director of Product, BRAVEN. “With the added ability to wirelessly link to our other newly announced BRAVEN Google-enabled speakers, Villa Connect provides a complete in-home premium audio solution.”
