Philips Hue can now wake you up using the Google Assistant

Signify (formerly Philips Lighting) has announced at CES 2019, the ability to use voice commands with the Google Assistant to activate sleep and wake light effects.

This marks the first integration of Philips Hue sleep and wake up feature with a digital assistant.

So now if you say, “Hey Google, turn on Gentle Wake Up” it will automatically sync with your Hue lights with alarms from the Google Assistant.

If you were to say, “Hey Google, sleep the lights at 10pm”, your lights will change to a warm tone of white light and fade out after 30 minutes.

“Sleep plays such an important role in our health and well-being. We’re pleased to be adding yet another option for our users to help them relax before bed and wake up in a way that prepares them for the day ahead,” said Duncan McCue, Head of Partnerships for Philips Hue at Signify.

You’ll also be able to use the voice commands with multiple users in every room you have Hue lights in.

The new feature is set to roll out by March.
