This is a running list that is continually updated, and today I've added four new listings for 2021.

The best smart home control apps for your Android phone

Controlling your smart devices with a speaker is very convenient, especially when you're busy cooking or are far from your phone.

We've updated this post with a few more apps, which we didn't cover in the initial post.
