The announcement that 1001 was launching an Alexa-controlled app certainly got people excited – though of course the #1001App competition didn’t hurt!

If you weren’t lucky enough to win an Amazon Echo Show, never fear. The 1001 Carpet Care app can now be used with your Google Assistant! That means you can get carpet cleaning tips and care advice from the app whether you’re using the Google Assistant on your Android phone, or a smart speaker in your home.

Here’s how to use the app with Google Assistant

Faced with a tricky stain or spill? Here’s what to do:

  1. Download the Carpet Care app through your Google Home app or access it through your Android phone.
  2. Next time you have a stain on your carpet or rug, ask Google Assistant to ‘Open Carpet Care’.
  3. Lisa, our digital carpet care assistant, will ask how she can help you.
  4. Ask for help, including the type of spill or mess and type of surface – for example, ‘How do I clean red wine out of a rug?’ or ‘How do I get cigarette smell out of the carpet?’
  5. If you have a speaker, Lisa will read the instructions for you, and if you are using your phone, you have the option to play a how-to video.
