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 into 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.

It does need some updates. I recommend you at capability where I could use my headphones And plug in to my phone As a remote, Is for example like the Roku app. I use this constantly.Is literally because it is super useful. You could mirror cast from your phone very well. Useful for casting games, movies, apps,or a gallery, You could easily enhance your phone casting experience. I will say it does glitch here and there every 3/30 times which is rare. Would recommend. I would like to see more plz

Always difficult. The app has no information of any sort. Click settings: just tells me my email. Devices: can't locate the nest devices. I am sure it must be because of new wifi info. But the only recommendation is to go to the website...... etc etc.... I've had three of these things for several years and almost pointless. And after reading other reviews it seems it is just how it is. I suppose the "fix" is to buy more products. Lol

I can't disconnect from things that are in my home that aren't mine and from what I can see, the option to forget or remove or even restrict control or access, has been removed. The most annoying experience is that I could accidentally, at any time in my notifications, control my roommates devices. I'm worried that I'll accidentally broadcast something personal to one of my roommates TVs.

Absolutely! Feeling like you can't control your own smart home stinks. Here's how to stop accidental takeovers: 1. Guest Mode: Restricts access on roommates devices, so no accidental broadcasts! 2. Separate Homes: Create different Homes in the Google Home app to control only your devices. We're always working to improve, and your feedback matters!
