If you’re in the market for a Google Assistant-powered smart bulb, you’ll be very disappointed to learn that Google has built a bulb, but it’s just for employees, as I mentioned before 9to5Google.

It also comes with several light presets, as well as the ability to change the temperature of the light.

Gold says that employees based in the US can order dLight for free (though he notes that it’s currently on demand) through the company, as part of Google’s effort to improve the work-from-home experience. Google employees still don’t have to go back to the office due to the epidemic.
