HomeAdvisor has integrated with the Google Assistant to allow homeowners to find and connect with local home service professionals using simple voice commands. The experience is available via the Google Assistant on eligible Android phones, iPhones, and on voice-activated speakers like Google Home.

"The integration with the Google Assistant enables the connected homeowner to reach pre-screened service professionals across the nation through simple voice commands," said Chris Terrill, CEO of ANGI Homeservices, which owns and operates HomeAdvisor, in a statement. "Having built the products and technology to seamlessly connect homeowners and service providers on demand, HomeAdvisor is the ideal home services marketplace to partner with voice assistants across the spectrum."

HomeAdvisor's patent-pending Instant Connect technology uses back-end telephony to connect users immediately on the phone with available, local professionals. HomeAdvisor has connected more than 45 million homeowners with pre-screened home service professionals in home service categories ranging from remodeling to gutter cleaning.
