One other one involved the power to pick and assign an space to a number of objects
without delay within the automation, scene, script, and system pages. We’ve added that too!

Not solely that, we now retailer the final used grouping (and in the event that they had been
collapsed or not) and sorting you’ve got used, so whenever you return to that web page,
will probably be the identical as you left it.

Some features of the tile card, such as the presets or the HVAC modes of a
thermostat, can show many buttons. While you can limit the buttons you’d
like to see, they may not be in the desired order.

Improved audio with ESPHome for Assist

If you’re familiar with Assist, our non-public voice assistant, and are utilizing
it on an ESPHome-based device (like an ESP-S3-BOX-3 or the ATOM Echo),
chances are high you’ve got skilled one of many largest limitations thus far when it
involves utilizing it every day: chopped-off audio. 😞

As a rule, the responses despatched to the voice assistant system had been
lacking just a few elements, most notably firstly and the tip of the audio.
This was very noticeable when the responses had been brief, reminiscent of asking what number of
lights are on in a house or the room temperature.

Along side the latest release of ESPHome (2024.4), we’re bringing
a a lot improved and extra dependable communication between ESPHome and
House Assistant for transferring voice audio, guaranteeing no audio is misplaced within the course of.
