PRESS: Internet giant Yandex wants to control smart homes

MOSCOW, Jul 18 (PRIME) -- Russian Internet giant Yandex will design a device managing household appliances and controlling engineering systems at home, business daily Vedomosti reported on Wednesday, citing an employee of the company.

YandexТs new device will resemble Google Home, a speaker and voice assistant, in terms of functions, the employee said.
