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 all Google products so that they’re secure by default. The built-in security in your Google Account automatically detects and blocks threats before they ever reach you, so that your personal information is always 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.
* Some products and features may not be available in all regions. Compatible devices required.
With the Google Home app you can control and manage compatible lights, cameras, TVs, and more – all from one place.

Ratings and Reviews
This app doesn’t do anything. You sign in, spend ages setting stuff up, then ask it to do something like open Netflix and it replies “opening Netflix” and you sit there waiting in anticipation while it continues to display wallpaper pictures. What a waste of time. Whoever created this rubbish needs to be fired. Useless junk.
Doesn’t sync fully with iOS settings
Although I find the Google Home device and this app useful, and even fun, in a general sense, it annoys me that it ignores my iPad’s UK dictionary setting when asked for spellings.
For example, in the wider English-speaking world, “colour” is NOT spelled “color” and there is, of course, no such substance as “aluminum”! If my other iOS apps can make these distinctions, based on my language and dictionary settings, why can’t Google Home?
Still, at least the assistant ‘sounds’ like a well-educated English rose and not some Twinky-schooled mid-western lift attendant.
