Android 11 Device Control

So Android 11 has launched with a new “Device Control” feature:

I have searched all over and for the life of me couldn’t figure out how it’s actually supposed to work.

It appears that this is a backend functionality which app developers can tie into:

If this is correct, is it possible for Hue Essentials to bring the Quick Tiles functionality to this as well? It would be very convenient to have this at the press of a power button instead of the quick action drop-down now that Google has gimped the quick action buttons to only 2 rows instead of 3 that it used to be.

I’d happily pay for this as an addon much like the Quick Tiles.

Looks cool! We will see what we can do for you.

woohoo thanks! would be amazing if it’s feasible. looking at the toggle types this might be able to open up more modes of interaction than quick actions, not just simple stuff like on/off or scene recall but actual slider control for lights/rooms too maybe. depends on how sophisticated the API is i suppose…

I’d love this, especially having control of groups or scenes. I don’t know if that’s possible with the API though. Would be more than happy if this was a paid feature too. Keep up the awesome work! My only hue app!
