Welcome to the Google Home Developer Center, the new destination for learning how to develop smart home actions. Note: You'll continue building actions in the Actions console.

Supported devices

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

Cloud-to-cloud-enabled devices in the Google Home ecosystem have different levels of touch control support depending on the app or surface being used:

  1. Google Assistant app
  2. Google Home app (GHA)
  3. Smart Display UI - Touch control are based on the traits supported by the device, not the device type itself.

App Touch Controls in the table below refers to both Assistant app and GHA. For more info, see Touch controls.

Device types without Local Home SDK support either:

  1. Require Secondary user verification for a required trait.
  2. Require a trait that cannot be supported by local fulfillment, such as CameraStream.
