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.

Not very intuitive nor easy to navigate when I use it. For instance, when making my grocery list via my assistant, it takes several clicks to find the list. The first time I used it, I was totally frustrated, but eventually found the list. To make any changes, it's a "hunting expedition" to locate what I need. This application needs a more user friendly interface perhaps?

Pretty good home management app. I love the routines! Particularly first thing in the morning on work days they are super helpful. Takes a bit of time to set up and can be confusing at first but goes smoothly once you get the hang of it. I've had some trouble playing specific playlists through Spotify with routines but hopefully that will get fixed in an update eventually.

Frustrating, to say the least! There is Always a problem with the cast symbol which doesn't show up when trying to watch Netflix through my phone and a Chromecast 3rd generation! The option to reboot the Chromecast is usually not available, showing: "some settings are unavailable at this time." When the cast symbol does appear, it is usually after 15 minutes or more! This is unacceptable! I have been told by tech support that Chromecast was designed to be used with a router. I don't have one.
