GE smart bulbs connect to Alexa and Google Assistant

Tuesday 21 November 2017 | 10:21 CET | News
GE has announced the addition of voice compatibility to its smart C by GE bulbs, allowing users to control their lighting individually or in groups via Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant. Voice control via Amazon Alexa (available immediately) or Google Assistant (by the end of the year) is made possible through a C by GE skill and the new C-Reach hub, which connects the bulbs to Wi-Fi so that consumers can turn on and off lights or dim them with a simple voice command. They can also control their lights remotely when away.
