Google Search on your mobile phone, fall Fashion Weeks season from New York to London, Milan and Paris.

Now, you can see the latest styles straight from the runway, hear directly from the designers, shop your favorite looks, see the schedule of events, find related news and follow the action like you're sitting in the front row — or even backstage.

In other news, a year ago, Google had introduced "OnHub," a router that's easy to use, and built to be placed front and center in homes (where Wi-Fi works best).

While celebrating first birtday of OnHub, a new partnership with Philips Lighting is made, letting you control first connected home device directly with OnHub.

"We know people don't like having too many apps on their phones, so we made it possible to control your home's Philips Hue lights without downloading an app. Now anyone connected to your OnHub can type "On.Here" in a computer, tablet, or mobile browser and control the most popular features of your Philips Hue lights from there. Crank up the party lights!," google stated.

Apart from Philips Hue, here are 10 things you can do with OnHub:

  • Be the host with the most (Wi-Fi)
  • Pinpoint what's slowing you down
  • Find the fastest Wi-Fi channel
  • Stay secure with OnHub getting automatic security updates from Google's cloud.
  • Control with a wave of your han
  • Call your Chromebook
  • Give your network name some
  • Get shells to match your home design
  • Make basic tasks more… basic. OnHub is the first router to support IFTTT — a service that lets you connect different websites, apps, and other devices to create "recipes" which perform simple actions.
  • Share and share alike. Everyone connected to your OnHub — on both the primary and guest Wi-Fi networks — can enter "On.Here" into any browser on a phone, tablet, or computer and quickly see all of the devices that are available on the guest network.
