Google Home - Actions (API) now available!

Thanks for that, I’ll check out Chromecast first, I’m not using that yet.


With the gRPC based Google Assistant, all I do is send a command via REST through python, which internally just sends this command (via text API) to Google Assistant: “repeat after me < whatever I want it to say >”. No chime since it’s thinking it’s actually from someone saying the command verbally. I might post a video sometime

When you say “text API” are you referring to the public API.AI, or the “undocumented” hidden local api?

@luckymallari Please tell us more - do you have any links to docs, code samples, anything?
(We are getting pretty off topic here so a new thread would probably be a good idea)

Yes, maybe a thread for google home with IFTTT?

There is already a thread how to use google home and IFTTT:

Hello Marzima,

I have been following this thread and it all sound great. Is there any chance we know when google will have this available to all a normal home control -> add device.

Well done this far and a big thank you to all in the community for helping.


Hi All,

great news! Google is currently testing it and if all goes well, we might have this week the official openHAB Action iunder Home Control of Google Assistant app.

I am doing a new deployment and looking forward to get it out asap. Thanks for being patient.

Google finally reacted and speeded things up the last days.

Fingers crossed!
Going to let you know these days and hope you get your long awaited suprise.

That’s awesome! Thank you for letting us know.

Awesome News!

Thank you for all your work, Mehmet!

Nice work @MARZIMA

That’s great news, thanks for updating us.
Looking forward to the announcement soon!

Thanks for the update ! Thanks a lot again :slight_smile:

All comes to he who waits. Thanks for your work on this Marzima. I’ve
resisted the urge to set up my own server etc and have patiently waited for
the official solution. Fingers crossed we don’t have long to wait and
they’re quick to reassess any minor glitches.


Hey, it’s seems OpenHAB is available in the Google Home App :grinning:


Yes, i see openhab under add devices.
Wen i try to connect i get a fault on the openhab login page: “The application requested acces to unknown scope”…

me too

yes it is!

Checked 2h ago and wasnt there… awesome!

@aart can confirm, same thing happened to me. Hopefully it’ll get sorted soon :wink:

Still, a great news! openHAB is finally directly accessible from Google Home app!

@MARZIMA huge thank you for your work and dedication! :slight_smile:
