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

Still hate this app. It's still not user friendly. Setup is not easy. Finding where to link 3rd party apps, or update the network, etc. everything takes so many clicks before you can find what you're looking for. I can't set up scenes for lights in Google home like I can in the native app; Home doesn't even have the same colors. What's the point. There are preset routines that don't work for me but I can't delete them. And the routines I want to set up, there is no functionality for.

Hi Harris, we're here to help To ensure control over your devices, try rebooting them, including your router to refresh their connection. Also, if you're using a dual-band router, we'd suggest checking and making sure to disable band steering. For more help, you can contact us here: https://goo.gle/3ie15Ae

The app itself is pretty solid with a great networking system, and the number of devices you can connect to the main hub is very user-friendly. However, the issue lies with the voice recognition within the nest minis and their connection to the other devices through the hub, so in short, it'll turn your phone into a universal remote for your entire smart home network.

We're sorry you've had this experience, Donovan. 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://goo.gle/3ie15Ae

BAD!! Set up is easy enough, however the device doesn't respond. It says "hmm something went wrong. Try again in a few seconds." after every command. You need to repeat yourself several times! By the time it is functioning enough to respond, you could have searched the answer yourself. It is not consistent with reminders or timers, and rarely connects to other streaming services like Spotify. The device is and not worth it. I threw it away after a month of trying!!
