A key feature of Smart Displays such as the Google Home Hub is that they can be used to help you prepare dinner by presenting hands-free, step-by-step recipes for you to follow. This is open to developers if they want to add their own actions, just like BuzzFeed's Tasty did recently. Now, Innit is getting in on the act.

All you have to do is say "Hey Google, talk to Innit" and it will bring up a customized interface offering a variety of kitchen assistance. You'll be able to get personalized recipe recommendations with video walkthroughs and Innit is even partnering with connected appliance companies to enable automated cooking functions.

If you download the Innit Android app, you'll get access to even more useful features, such as meal planning, personalized nutrition, and smart shopping lists. This type of Smart Display integration isn't that widespread yet, but the potential is huge — so much so that Innit has won a CES 2019 Innovation Award for its good work.

The Innit action should be live on your Smart Display right now if you're in the US, but it doesn't work yet in the UK. More integrations like this could be on their way, including from the likes of  SideChef. Chris Cosentino did a Google Assistant Playground demonstration at CES, so we can expect his platform to bolster the Assistant's cooking credentials in the near future.

Innit is the first open smart kitchen platform to enable deeply personalized food recommendations, coupled with automated precision cooking, enabling incredible everyday cooking results with a single touch or voice command. Innit has built a broad partner ecosystem including four of the top six appliance companies and three of the top four food companies, and the joint solution connects them into a rich hands-free consumer experience on Google Smart Displays.

"One of the major trends we expect in 2019 will be the growing adoption of multimodal voice/video interfaces in the kitchen," said Michael Wolf, founder of the Smart Kitchen Summit. "The Google Assistant partnership with Innit, which enables features like guided cooking through voice interactions on the Google Hub smart display, is an example of the type of integration that we expect to give this market continued momentum."

Consumers don’t need any smart appliances to get started -- they can simply “talk to Innit” on their Smart Display with the Google Assistant to get step-by-step guidance for everyday cooking. Innit leverages the Assistant and acts as a “culinary GPS” system, calculating steps for each meal and helping home chefs create amazing results while minimizing preparation time. Downloading the Innit mobile app enables additional advanced features, including personalized nutrition, customized meal planning, smart shopping lists, and integration with multiple brands of non-connected and connected kitchen appliances.
