Google Home - Controlling Fan Speeds

Google Home in its current configuration does not allow the control of Fan speeds. Google home supports On/Off functionality of the ceiling fan. 

When turning the fan on with Google home the default speed will be the mid speed of your Fan

The same applies to the ceiling fan light

  • Will this ever be updated to allow speed control? Or at least will IFTTT be updated to allow speed control so we could set up a command that way?

  • Google Home supports dimming of lights. Latching dim levels to fan speeds would be the proper way to handle this. Here are the commands Google accepts for dimmable lights:

    Dim or brighten a light: “Hey Google, dim the [light name].”, “Hey Google, brighten the [light name].”
    Set a light brightness to a certain percentage: “Hey Google, set [light name] to 50%.”
    Dim or brighten lights by a certain percentage: “Hey Google, dim/brighten [light name] by 50%.”
