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.

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 safety.google/nest to learn more about how we protect your information and respect your privacy.

Overall it's easy to use and set up. Have several bulbs and a thermostat on it. Easy to access and manage the devices. Only gripe I've had is on at least one occasion I've had to set up the thermostat again. Not sure what the issue was, it's a google thermostat, but it disconnected and the only to reconnect was to remove it entirely and add it back in. A bit if hassle, but other than that no issues.

Overall really appreciate the ability to cast music to groups of devices. I like the new interface with ability to change volume on individual devices playing. We lost ability to change the volume on a speaker group. Please bring that back! The reliability of getting Google home to respond and play is less than great. Sometimes you can't see speaker groups to select. Other times it just won't play.

We hear you, Cody. While we've no news to share on when it will be available again, we know changing the volume of the speaker group is important to you and we'll take this as feedback. Stay tuned on our social channels for updates and announcements.

Google home used to be very good, but something happened the last year or two. It's as though Google is sabotaging the product, as more than half the time, the app is no longer able to answer my questions. It's also deleted all of my 24 alarms for the SECOND time! Having memory issues, I make heavy use of alarms to remind and prompt me throughout the day, including using multiple alarms to remember to take meds. On Prime Day, I'm moving to Alexa, despite not using Prime. Sadly it's that bad!

We're sorry you've had this experience. Make sure your devices are within 15 to 20 feet of your router for a stable connection. Also, you might want to try resetting them to their default settings for a fresh start. For more help, reach out through phone, chat, or social forums: https://bit.ly/3adTfGB
