While Google Home has been able to work with air conditioning units and heaters for a while the documentation adds a new category of air cooler which they define as ‘more lightweight’ and ‘portable’. Why they need to make this difference we don’t know.

So expect to see air coolers and freezers coming out with Google Assistant compatibility. While we might be scratching our heads as to why and what kind of voice commands we would want to give our freezers it will be much like every other piece of smart home kit and automation we’ve installed and kept; you’ll never know how valuable this stuff is until you start using it.
