Set up SmartThings devices to Google Assistant

Authorize Google play

There's an even better way to use your SmartThings devices - through Google Assistant. You'll be able to control SmartThings devices such as the Smart Plug around your smart home with nothing but your voice.

Set up Google Voice

Before you have Google Assistant control your SmartThings devices, you need to set up Google Assistant in general.

From Settings, tap Google. Scroll to and tap Search, Assistant & Voice, and then tap Voice. Tap Voice Match, and then tap Access with Voice Match. Then, allow any required permissions.

Now, if you say "Ok Google," even if your screen is off, you can access your Assistant.

Connect SmartThings to Google Assistant

To begin your Google smart home journey, you'll need to link the SmartThings app and Google Assistant together. Once linked, Google Assistant will be able to control any permitted SmartThings devices.

On your phone, touch and hold Home to launch Google Assistant. Then, swipe up to open the dashboard. Tap the Options icon (your account picture), and then tap Settings. Tap the Assistant tab, and then swipe down to and tap + Add a device. Tap Link a device, and then search for and select SmartThings. Sign into SmartThings using your Samsung account credentials.

Tap the drop-down menu, and select the desired devices to connect. Tap Authorize. Now, test it out to see if it works. Touch and hold Home to launch Google Assistant, and then say a command. For example, you could say "Turn off the Smart Plug."
