Hi 152bobby,
Please do not call any support numbers posted on this forum thread they are fake/spam numbers pretending to be official Google support and should be removed shortly.

If you have a compatible Hive device you can find more information about setting this up to work with your Google Home from the Google Home help center link below.

Hi 152bobby

I wish Google could stop all this spam that gets in the way. DO NOT CALL THAT NUMBER

Anyway, you can hopefully find all the info you need on the following link. I've used it for sometime and it works beautifully with Google Home.

Thanks for the warnings, I would never call such a number.
Going back to my original question, I have paired my Hive System with Google Home and can raise my thermostat temperature by saying "Hey Google, raise temperature to 21 degrees"
It really does not recognise any other command that I can find, not even 'Hey Google, boost heating"
Comparing Google Home with Amazon Alexa, confirms that Google Home is light years behind Amazon Alexa, but I still like it.

Thanks that's very helpful, I searched that forum and that never came up.
At least they are aware and are working on it.

The GHH is poor in getting things working like Hive, I tried and it failed, got a free alexa echo dot with my hive and it was up and running within a few minutes, while I couldn't get GHH to work with it properly

Update: After spending so proper time looking at this, I've managed to get Hive setup how I want on the Google Home Hub and mini
