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 parcel 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 that 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 at any time 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 children. Automatically prioritise video conferencing and gaming traffic on all devices, or decide which devices to prioritise 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 Centre at safety.google/nest to find out more about how we protect your information and respect your privacy.

Love this technology! The only reason I gave it four stars is because sometimes it lags or changes voices on its own or loses connection with one of the speakers. Otherwise I love all of the Google Nest minis that are in my home! Love that you can control all of your smart devices from this app! I especially love that you can play music through the whole house inside this app. And if you want to shut off some of the speakers but not all this app allows you to do so by separating them! 😱😁

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!!

This app is very hard to use. With my Radio Thermostat app, all I have to do is hit a "set away" button and all thermostats go to an adjustable low setting. One button releases to normal schedules. With this app, you have to go into each thermostat and change each period in the schedule to eco setting. It also shows graphs of inside and outside Temps and also has graphs that show how long the heat was on each hour. It would be good if you could add these features.
