Nest and Google have announced that starting on Wednesday, the Nest x Yale lock will gain compatibility with the Google Assistant. In more concrete terms, it’ll add voice commands to let users remotely check the status of the lock and lock their doors from any location. You’ll be able to lock the door by voice – but, it’s worth noting, not unlock it… because, you know, security.
