Eletrolux announces Google Assistant support for smart ovens early next year

What’s the point of a smart home if Google Assistant support isn’t available? Is a product truly “smart” if you can’t tell your Google Home to control it?

Existentialism aside, Electrolux announced that future smart ovens will feature Google Assistant support. While the smart-ifying of common household appliances is often frowned upon (as they get more complicated, more annoying, less secure, and potentially even less reliable), this one makes sense.
