Does the Chamberlain myQ Work with Google Home?
Chamberlain is a manufacturer mostly known for their garage door openers, remote controls, and other garage accessories. Recently, however, they have started manufacturing smart technology to go with these garage accessories so you can control your home no matter where you are—all through a quick and convenient smartphone app.
This year, Chamberlain has started offering its premium subscription to device owners free of charge for a limited time. This membership allows device users to integrate Google Home and other certified partners with their devices for free.
Included in Chamberlain’s featured myQ Partners is the Google Assistant. You can now link your myQ products to your Google Home products to use voice commands to control your garage door and lights.
Use the command, “OK Google,” to check if your garage door is open, or tell Google to turn lights on or off in your home.

To integrate your Google Home account with your myQ account, you need to have both the myQ and Google Assistant apps downloaded on your smartphone.
