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

Home app continues to malfunction. I have a flood light camera and the flood light will not turn on when requested. I have had to uninstall and reinstall this several times and it keeps reverting back to not working. I've also had issues with my internet just stopping for no reason. I've also had issues with my nest doorbell camera not functioning properly in the home app. (Edited) I've already checked my Wi-Fi connection. Everything is on the same Wi-Fi. I have performed several resets.

Hey Joshua, help's here. Make sure all your devices including your mobile phone are connected to the same Wi-Fi bandwidth with mobile data turned off. Consider to reboot and factory reset your devices to setup as new into your Home app. For more help, visit: https://goo.gle/3ie15Ae

Update home yesterday 1/14 and now my light doesn't work. I tried unlinking and relinking and when I do a blank white page pulls up. I'm using smart life to use my light. Update: it now moves past a blank screen now and lets me add devices to my room. My light still doesn't work. I select add and it asks what room then after all the prompts, puts me back at the add screen. Doesn't work. It keeps telling me it's not set up yet. Sync my devices didn't work either. Please fix.

Hey Colette, help's here! If you haven't yet, we'd suggest creating a temporary Home structure and moving your smart lights and speaker to see if it'll work — also, try saying the command "Hey Google, sync my devices". For more help, reach out to us here: https://goo.gle/3ie15Ae

This app is terrible and isn't getting better over time. They keep trying to add more functionality into this one app by getting rid of other apps and it's a complete mess. There's so much lost functionality and confusion that I dread having to use it. I used to be a huge fan of Google, but over the last eight or so years they've taken a seriously wrong turn. The entire ecosystem is just getting progressively more convoluted and confusing, while actually useful features are being deprecated.
