Google Now Almost Ready to Control Your Nest Thermostat

Go ahead, say to your Android device: “OK, Google, set the temperature to seventy-two degrees!” And the Google Now will respond with “Setting temperature to seventy-two degrees Fahrenheit.” This is proof that Google Now is almost ready to communicate with Nest, a thermostat smart device now owned by Google. Not only can users set the temperature of their house using Google Now commands, but it will even synchronize with iOS and Android mobile devices to give users Google Now cards. These cards can inform users that their Nest thermostat is getting the temperature of their houses ready as they are driving home.

Ok Google NestGoogle Now Nest

Google has already made a webpage at workswithnest.google.com, which features the Google Now Nest features, and shows two key functions of Nest with Google Now: (1) Setting Nest temperature before users arrive to their homes, and (2) setting the temperature using Google Now commands. These pages are not ready yet, as links on the page simply take the user to a 404 page.
