Re: This is Going to Be Huge
@dc I haven't really tried, myself. I suspected Google would get into IoT once they began development for Android Wear and the Android for Autos. I'm curious about interoperability among device brands. Might Google be the company to lead the way??

Re: This is Going to Be Huge
Third part apps have been tried for television, cars and even kitchen devices. I still have not found a situation where they have really worked out. 

Anyone else?

Re: This is Going to Be Huge
@faryl I think the hope here is that is what happens. Third-party app ecosystems have worked well in the mobile space. But where else has it really been successful? In the early days, mobile developers made a killing if an app did well. But those days have diminished as well. What's the value prop here?

Re: This is Going to Be Huge
Another nice side effect is that as more people start to use it, the number of possible uses will increase. IoT strikes me as one of those technologies that will really start to take off as more people identify ways to tailor it to new needs - the way opening up the iPhone app market or even the Twitter api did.

@SFW I think the launch of the development platform is directly related to Google's interest in growing it's Google Home product. Opening up a development platform will enable them to reach more consumers.

Re: IOT
Smart move. 

With Google moving the Brillo platform under the Android brand, third party developers might take a bit more interest. I know it's more of a branding move than a technical one, but if developers can build interesting apps for IoT, that's a win for the ecosystem.

This is Going to Be Huge
This announcedment alone will take IoT to a whole new level.  I also predict that this will have a positive effect on the sales of Google Home as it starts to work with more devices.

Re: IOT
Are a lot of people already using Weave? I don't recall hearing about it. Perhaps there really aren't all that money, and this is intended to boost interest. Certainly, it makes sense for Google to try to get a piece of the IoT action.
