LIFX is compatible with the Google Assistant via Google Home, Pixel and other eligible Android Devices.
Before linking your Google account, please ensure your lights are connected to your LIFX Cloud account.
Note: Google has recently added a "Sync my lights" command. This allows you to add new lights, without going through the process below, from scratch. You can simply ask "OK, Google, Sync my lights", as long as the account is already setup, new lights you add, will be easily added to voice control.
Important note - if your Google Home has multiple users you must link your LIFX account to all users accounts.
