About this app

Set up, manage, and control your Google Nest, Google Wifi, Google Home, and Chromecast devices, plus thousands of compatible connected home products like lights, cameras, thermostats, and more – all from the Google Home app.

Turn on the lights, adjust the thermostat, or get an alert when there’s a person or package at your front door. Google Home on Wear OS will be available as a preview as we continue to add controls and improvements.

One view of your home.
The Home tab gives you shortcuts for the things you do most, like playing music or dimming the lights when you want to start a movie. Control it all with just a tap or two – and get to the good stuff faster. The Feed tab highlights important events in your home in one place. Here, you’ll also find ways to get more out of your devices and improve your home setup.

Create Routines that allow you to turn on compatible lights, check the weather, play the news, and more with one simple command.

See all the active audio and video streams on your compatible home devices in one place, change the volume, skip to the next track, or quickly change which speakers they’re playing from.

Understand what’s going on at home with a glance.
The Google Home app is designed to show you the status of your home and keep you up to date with what you may have missed. Check in on your home anytime and see a recap of recent events. You can also get a notification if something important happens while you’re away.

Set up your Nest Wifi and Google Wifi in minutes using the Google Home app. Run speed tests, set up a guest network, and easily share your Wi-Fi password with family and friends. Use parental controls like Wi-Fi pause to manage online time for the kids. Automatically prioritize video conferencing and gaming traffic on all devices, or decide which devices to prioritize for all traffic types. Get more insights on your network, whether it’s a notification when a new device joins your network or detailed insights for troubleshooting a poor internet connection.

A helpful home is a private home.
Protecting your privacy starts with one of the world’s most advanced security infrastructures, which we build directly into Google products so that they’re secure by default. The built-in security in your Google Account automatically detects and blocks threats before they reach you, so that your personal information is secure.

We build privacy tools that keep you in control.
Control your Google Assistant activity, privacy settings, information, and personal preferences. See your activity, delete it manually, or choose to delete it automatically. Control your privacy on Google Assistant with your voice. Ask questions like “Where can I change my privacy settings?” to get answers to the most common privacy and security questions.

Visit the Google Nest Safety Center at to learn more about how we protect your information and respect your privacy.

Always difficult. The app has no information of any sort. Click settings: just tells me my email. Devices: can't locate the nest devices. I am sure it must be because of new wifi info. But the only recommendation is to go to the website...... etc etc.... I've had three of these things for several years and almost pointless. And after reading other reviews it seems it is just how it is. I suppose the "fix" is to buy more products. Lol

Hi Matt, it seems like you're running into some difficulties with the Google Nest app. No worries, Google Nest Support can definitely help! They can walk you through reconnecting your Nest devices. Here's the link to schedule a callback:

Getting new Wi-Fi networks/needing to reconnect devices seems to be very complicated and cumbersome. Why can't I simply update the Wi-Fi without having to redo the whole setup process of a device? Very odd and frustrating. For example, I have a Google speaker device at home right now that I have forgotten to connect to a new Wi-Fi network. Therefore no one can use it until I'm home to "forget" the previous Wi-Fi connection and reestablish the new one.

I understand the convenience of having all apps together in one app but ever since you got rid of Google WiFi and nest this app has been the worst. My cameras barely work now, if the wifi goes out we're screwed, the tv app sucks for control of our TV. The prices are going up and the service/utility is getting worse. I've already decided to look elsewhere for a podcast app once that one gets integrated. Before you launch these "all in one" apps, make sure they are working properly!
