How to set up Google Assistant for the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde

While the Dyson Link app is quite helpful for controlling Dyson products like the new Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde. The company also gives users the option to control the purifier with digital assistants like Google Assistant, Siri, and Amazon Alexa.

I’m here to help you set up Google Assistant to control your Dyson appliances. This isn’t just limited to the new air purifier/fan. But I am using it to show you how to set this connection up.

  1. Install/open the Google Home app. Make sure you have the Google Home app installed on your device. 
  2. Tap on the + sign at the upper left corner of the app and then select the Set up a device option. 
  3. In that window, tap on the Works with Google option.
  4. You will then be taken to a list of supported brands. Type in Dyson in the search bar.
  5. After that, you will be prompted to link your Dyson account to your Google account. Tap on Link. You will be asked to sign in to your Dyson account to authorize the connection. And then, you’re all set.

The devices linked to your Dyson account will show up on Google Home’s homescreen. In my case, I have the Purifier Cool Formaldehyde in the Master Bedroom.

You can now use Google Assistant to control your Dyson purifier. All you need to say is “Hey Google” and then try the following commands:

"Turn on my purifier."
"Set the fan speed to five."
"Turn off my purifier."

The device will also support Google Routines if you want to automate when your Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde turns on.
