It's a neat trick and an awesome feature. Open up Google Now on Android or the Google app on iOS and tell Google to set your Nest Thermostat to 70 degrees. If you do that, Google Now will recognize you're talking about the Nest smart thermostat and will adjust the temperature in your home. Once that's done controlling the temperature at home is as easy as saying, "Ok Google."
How cool is that? One day, I expect technology will such that as soon as you walk into your home, you'll open-talk to your house and say things like "Computer, turn on the lights in master bedroom, play New Orleans jazz in kitchen, turn on the TV to channel 43, start my shower, turn up the AC to 72, make me a cup of coffee...."
