The 'Talk to my Umbraco website' package allows you to edit your Umbraco content via Google Home, the smart speaker developed by Google. It will (eventually) save you tons of time, and you can throw your keyboard away, because you can manage your website through your own voice.
Example sentences that will work are:
You can replace the words between brackets with the names of your own doctype. If you have "Vehicle", "Product" or "Blog" as a documenttype you can ask Google Home to add those. This works out of the box without any line of code!
After Google Home knows which documenttype you have specified, it will iterate through the properties of the documenttype and ask you for each of the properties what value it should set for that property.
Supported datatypes currently:
You can also add images to your media library with our example phrases:
Finally you can also ask Google Home about some basis statistics of your website:
Happy talking to your favourite Umbraco website!
