How to configure Google Home with Gladys Assistant

It's possible to control Gladys devices with Google Home using Gladys Plus, our online gateway service.

Google Home is a very special integration, because Google Home works exclusively in the cloud (and we can't really change anything about that unfortunately).

To be a Google Home partner, we had to:

  • Pass some automated unit tests on Google side
  • Pass a manual review from Google team
  • Complete a Google Home Certification process

This is not an easy process, and therefore it's not really feasible for all our users to do this process on their side, it's a process that is intended for professionals & companies, and that's why we propose this integration in Gladys Plus exclusively.

You need to go to our Gladys Plus page, and enter your email.

Configure Gladys Plus#

Gladys Plus needs to be fully configured before you can use the Google Home integration.
