Android 11 rumours hint at tighter integration with smart home controls

Android 11

Many Android News sites have picked up leaks on the upcoming Android 11 update and if the rumours are true this could be a real win for smart home users.

Central to the update is tighter integration with Google Home taking significant real estate on the long-press power button screen. Usually reserved for e-wallets, which remains, below the cards controls for Google Home take pride of place.

This is the biggest sign yet of Google’s commitment to home automation and the Google Home and Assistant platforms. Question arise as to whether competitive Home platforms like HomeKit or Alexa will be allowed to integrate into this space (we doubt it) but we only hope that will force other platforms to innovate and integrate further.

All we can say is Automate On!
