The current version of the Home Connect App presents itself to the user with a completely revised look and feel and brings along a multitude of new features.
Home Connect offers the user a wide range of intuitive solutions that make everyday household tasks more efficient. The app safely integrates the entire networked household appliance portfolio from oven, cooker and extractor hood to dishwasher, refrigerator, washing machine and dryer to fully automatic coffee maker and vacuum cleaner robot – no matter what brand.
In the latest development of Home Connect, we, together with our client BSH Hausgeräte GmbH, have focused on making the user interface even more intuitive and making interaction even easier for the user.
After receiving a personal greeting, the user can see the status of all household appliances at a glance on the revised home screen. Access to relevant and frequently used app functions is significantly simplified by "Quick Actions". The elimination of the registration requirement as well as the integration of a number of new partner services into the Home Connect ecosystem - such as voice control via Google Assistant* - also provide significant user added value. Operating the oven, cooker and extractor hood with sticky dough-covered hands without having to clean the kitchens for hours afterwards? Not something in the distant future, but a tangible reality! In addition, the latest update provides the user with a personal "What's for dinner" assistant that learns individual eating habits and suggests suitable recipes.
At the presentation of the new Home Connect App at this year's IFA in Berlin, the trade press and visitors reacted extremely positively to the innovations presented. This feedback shows us that we are pursuing the right objectives, together with BSH, by focusing on user benefits. No reason to take a break, but rather an incentive for us to make the impossible possible in the further development of Home Connect. We are already working on going far beyond the field of kitchen action and integrating all networking activities at home into Home Connect. Stay tuned!
