LENBROOK ADDS OK GOOGLE VOICE CONTROL TO BLUOS

Lenbrook International has announced that its BluOS Hi-Res Distributed Audio platform, as found in DALI, NAD and BlueSound products, will support Google Voice Assistant through Actions On Google.

If you own any BluOS Enabled products, you will soon be prompted to update your kit on or around October 8. Once the firmware has refreshed, you will then be able to control your music from any Google Home device using voice commands.

Google Voice on BluOS

Google Voice Assistant in BluOS responds to a raft of commands through any network-connected Google Home device, including play/pause, next/back, shuffle on/off and managing the play queue for most user libraries and music services. A full list of commands will be published in support documentation on the BluOS website.

Google Voice Assistant joins Amazon's Alexa as part of the voice control strategy from BluOS. This strategy includes the creation of BluVoice, the voice-control interface that acts as the intermediary between BluOS and a compatible voice assistant.

Andrew Haines, BluOS Product Manager, told StereoNET:
 

The addition of Google Voice as the second platform-wide voice control integration after Amazon's Alexa, and third such integration if you take into consideration Apple's Siri for BluOS users with AirPlay 2 enabled products, opens up a world of possibilities for our users to customise their home environment easily and conveniently.

Experience BluOS and Google Voice

Google Voice Assistant will be demonstrated at CEDIA Expo September 12-14, in the Lenbrook Booth 2520, Hall F at the Colorado Convention Center.
