What can you do with Google Assistant and Philips Hue?

The advantage of Google Assistant is that you can control your Philips Hue lamps with your voice. This means the assistant makes manual operations a thing of the past. Use terms like 'Hey Google, turn on all Hue lamps.' or 'Hey Google, dim the Hue lamps in the living room to 50%.' You also switch on all your favorite lighting scenes. You've already compiled these in the app. Thanks to the interaction between both apps, all you have to do is call up your favorite scene and your Hue lamps will respond. Your wish is my command.
