The first step is simply to try and talk to the service My Spa Control by saying « Hey Google, talk to my spa control ». It will recognize the service and ask you to link it via the Google Home app. Tap on LINK, under the My Spa Control service, in the Google Home app to proceed.

The app will then prompt the login page of the in.touch2 app. You need to enter the credentials of your in.touch2 account in order to link the skill to your spa. Note that only one spa can be linked at a time. If you have more than one spa, you will need to alternate between spas by disabling the skill and re-enabling/linking it to one of the other spas.

You will be prompted to select a spa if you have more than one associated to your account, otherwise Google Home will proceed to link the service to your spa immediately.
