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.
Over the next few days we’ll be rolling out the following:

Ratings and Reviews
Google Home set up / multi vender devices..
I am impressed with the google home app running on IOS devices.. Yes It would be best to purchase same vender devices if possible.. Step 1 load the specific app set ( sunCo lights+ewelink) in my devices choices.. Set up your devices first from manufacturing company.. After your devices are set up GOTO google[+] add devices Next find your devices in list of manufacturers Then press appropriate links..After all your devices of choice have been linked You may now delete manufacturers install/ set up applications.. The reason you want to delete manufacturers application.. 1 save on memory.. 2 Less confusions navigation of multiple applications.. At the moment as far as can tell horizontal format for devices is available.. A grid option format for devices buttons would be a improvement ....
Update.. for grid options..
To group or room up your devices..
Create a label for your devices.. Google home will automatically arrange devices with numbers first then letters. So to arrange your devices priority .. 1 living room, 2 kitchen and 3 Bathrooms. Labeling with out a number will be arranged to bathroom, kitchen, living room..
Google doorbell camera
Excellent picture in day and night. Think the price is fair but if they could get the price down to $100 I’m not sure they’d be able to keep them in stock. The 2 way speaker works great I can hear people clearly even when they’re whispering about us having a doorbell camera. Lol. The camera runs off of the Google home app and install of camera and setup of app is very simple. Set up everyone in the home to work the app from their phone. Also has facial recognition in a sense. You can type the names of people that are viewed by camera and once you do and select that you know them the next time they’re seen on camera you get a smiley avatar along with there name. Camera isn’t backed up off sight but you can store All footage on your phone from the time it’s activated and go through it anytime you want or might need to if there’s a reason for the police to see the footage. Only thing I would improve is that I received the notifications when they were 10 to 15 yards from camera as opposed to 5 feet from camera.. If I lived in a bigger city I would have bought one that is monitored but I live in a very small town with a very low crime rate. Hope this helps anyone looking to purchase a doorbell camera
Irksome, poorly designed (T-stat use only)
Edited after a season's use. Overall, feels a bit like an acquisition they now regret and will let die. Like others say, the app is cumbersome, slow, and awkward. Using this for an old-style Nest t-stat obtained from my electric utility. As an example of poorly thought-out operation (that is, privileging circuit design over utility) it took me longer to find out which device version it was than to put it on the wall. (A page of text would be much better than lots of fun bouncy graphics-we're installing things like thermostats, not playing). Yes the device is an improvement (and is the only reason this isn't a one-star review), but really, it's easier to set the thermostat manually if you are away than it is to do it here. Just more things to go wrong with no actual advance. PS I really, really dislike the lack of a sign out in this app. Update 3/23: Pleasantly surprised that it has operated more or less faultlessly since setup, so will add one star (now 3) as I add another device to a different furnace. Just my opinion, but the secret seems to be to keep it local only (don't attempt anything other than in home & on same network) and use a simple routine-the rest is just a problem in search of something to do aka unnecessary.
