Turning off your lights without hearing from your Google Home 0 Recommended Answers 109 Replies 505 Upvotes

Hello Google Nest Community,
Anyone who has a Google Home and smart lights knows the drill:
You, about to fall asleep: “Ok Google, turn off the bedroom lights”.Google Home responds, a bit louder than you’d like: “Ok, turning off 2 lights”.You, now wide awake, but at least the lights are off.
Well, we heard you, and we listened. Now, if your Google Home or Nest Hub device is in the same room as your smart home lights, instead of responding with, “Ok, turning off 2 lights” it will simply ‘chime’ to let you know it’s turning off the lights.
This change will not only work for lights, but also for switches and plugs which are identified as lights. For example, if your desk lamp is connected to a smart plug called “desk lamp” then this new feature will apply; but, if the plug is just called “desk” the Assistant will give a full response. This will also apply to all of the light commands you’ve gotten used to, like increasing the brightness, dimming the lights and much more.
We’re currently rolling this feature out, and will update this post once we can confirm it’s available for everyone.
