3 Deep Smart-Home Connectivity
The Essential phone — and its modular accessories — is also tailor-made for connectivity with the company’s Essential Home device. This is important because the Essential Home doesn’t seek solely to be a competitor to products like Amazon Echo or Apple HomeKit: it’s made to work with and bring those devices together. The Essential Home will work seamlessly with Alexa, Siri and the Google Assistant — bringing together separate APIs to create a smooth experience. Add the Essential Phone to the mix and you can only imagine what kind of connected and open-source world Rubin hopes to create.
