Do you already own a yeedi robot vacuum? Using it becomes effortless when the app is connected to your Google Home device. We will go through the whole setup process.
It will start with setting up the yeedi app and robot, Google Home, and then connecting the robot vac to the Google Home speaker.
How to Connect yeedi Robot Vac with the App
Step 1: Download the yeedi app from the Google Play Store or use the QR code on the robot and the instructions manual.
Step 2: Turn on the robot and create an account on the yeedi app. Please remember these credentials because you will use them when configuring the Google Assistant.
Step 3: Ensure the robot is connected to the internet. There are instructions on the app to guide you to connect to the robot.
Once you are done with the steps above, the next part is setting up Google Home.
