Feature Request: Wake on Lan

Community Member

I've been using 3rd party smart Switches to turn my devices on and off however most of them could use Wake-on-Lan instead.

I was wondering if a google nest mini could instead send Wake-On-Lan (and Shutdown-On-Lan) packets when using a google voice assistant.
Currently it works as well as the smart switches (some better than others). However I would assume it far quicker if it only uses googles services instead of 3rd party API links.

Hello chromeskull,


Great suggestion, but the feature that you're looking for is not available on any of our Google Home or Nest speakers or displays. We're always looking for ways to improve, and we appreciate your feedback.

You might be interested in trying using Matter-enabled devices; this is a universal smart home industry standard that was created to make it easier for users to know which smart home devices are compatible, set up smart devices quickly and consistently, and enjoy smart home experiences that are more responsive and reliable.
