Set up, manage, and control your Google Home, Google Nest, and Chromecast devices, plus thousands of 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 – and get to the good stuff faster. The Feed tab highlights the most important events in your home all 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 lights, check the weather, play the news, and more with one simple command. See all the active audio and video streams on all your home devices in one place, change their volumes, 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 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 in minutes using the Google Home app. Manage your network from your mobile device. Run speed tests, set up a guest network, and easily share your Wi-Fi password with family and friends. Decide which devices to prioritize for faster speeds and use parental controls like Wi-Fi pause to manage online time for the kids. * Some products and features may not be available in all regions. Compatible devices required.



  • Disappointing

    By Rob555555
    They have completely screwed up the migration from Nest products and they still don’t fully support Google Apps accounts. Needless to say, my google assistant speakers can control any device EXCEPT my nest thermostat. Oh and no support for the Nest protects in google home which I spent $700 on. SMH Google

    This app is so hard to find where the settings are and overall very hard to change the things you want
  • Awesome

    Love this app . Useful
  • App crashes

    By allimak
    I just got the Hue started kit and was very excited to use it. I connected everything and downloaded the app, but as soon as o open the app, it crashes. I have tried multiple times to open it and have also restarted my phone. Not sure what to do here...

  • Disappointing from Google

    By Doctorscholl
    I’m sure the group working on Google home know the issues but the app and functionality is a mess. It’s beautiful and if it just worked it would be great but screens are there then you can’t find how to get back to them. I can’t control volume streaming through Spotify. Nest point is playing music but device won’t show as a speaker or ability to set up as one in google home. I ask google to play music but it acts like it isn’t connected when it clearly says linked in the app. Just a messy and confusing experience that makes me want to avoid google products. :(
  • No bueno

    By The led expert
    Get Alexa. Save yourself the trouble of even trying this nonsense of an app. Alexa connects all devices right away with minimal effort.

    The convenience of the google home devices help make life easier. Wonderful investment
  • needs improvement

    By GParker4141
    i really like this app but there are some things i wish they would change for more ease of use. when i try to access manage routines a lot of times it only loads the pre set routines and not my custom ones which gets annoying, if they could also create a way to turn off routines with a switch in the app it would make it way easier to cancel a routine for a certain day without having to change the scheduled day every time i want to turn it off
  • Amazing

    By ScottBassMan
    Just installed a smart plug so can control a light in my office with voice command. Linked to Spotify so can play any music too. Amazing. The future is here.
  • Was working fine

    By eric m leve
    I had a google home and everything was working fine. I purchased more products and have had nothing but issues ever since. I contacted customer service and they advised me to create a new account and reset everything. Which I did and this only made the issues worse. None of the apps will connect, after the app says connected. Then when I go to use them it says “cannot find” and offers me the option to connect them only to say “already linked”. I’m honestly just thinking of returning everything.
  • More Nest functionality please

    By scjtp
    What I need is for it to automatically turn down thermostat when I leave and turn on cameras — reverse when I get home
  • The app keeps crashing

    By Sorry to every one who seen the trailer
    If I get and open the app more than twice a day the app crashes and I have to restart my phone to get it to work again. But love the features. Super annoying that this happens would be more fun to play with.
  • Connection issues

    By Digi Ma
    Google Mini keeps disconnecting from Apple Music but not Spotify. Please fix. Whether we play music from the iPhone or iPad it keeps disconnecting.
  • Connection issue

    By Starjjj71
    There have been connection issues this whole week. Also google interrupts me when I’m talking. It’s not my internet bc literally all my WiFi cameras security system and Alexa has been perfect. Fix the issue and I’ll change the rating

    By Tiffaneey
    If you live on a campus, save your time and money. It’s literally a piece of crap. Refuses to connect to my school wifi and bluetooth is ALWAYS disconnecting. save yourself the hassle.
  • Issues

    By E-l-e-n-a-S-t
    Great concept, could be potentially very useful device/app, but there are some pretty annoying issues with it: 1) It keeps signing out from google home app, there is a known issue with it. Imagine, you set up an alarm and next morning it didn’t wake you up, because you were automatically kicked out from the app. 2) you can’t remove other devices once they were added, there is a bug. It displays an error message when you attempts to toggle off devices. So annoying! 3) constantly pushing you to subscribe to paid account to be able to use basic functionality
  • Great Google

  • Why so complicated?

    By Bronte Joseph
    This is the most confusing and user-UNfriendly app I have encountered in a while. My roommates and I all struggled profusely trying to set up our respective Google Homes and the app was majorly in part to that. A facelift & update are needed ASAP.
  • Google has trouble understanding my commands

    By hehsucheje71
    Simple commands such as setting light scenes or setting up routines is as complicated as talking to a wall. The response I get the most is “Sorry I don’t know how to help with that” which doesn’t help much. Only thing google is good for is telling it to play music. Anything else you will have to do manually. Disappointed!
  • Awful

    By koalaFried
    Doesn’t do any the things it says it will do. Also making me write this review with a white font on a white background very impressive

  • Always getting “Something went wrong, try again later”

    By ~~~AS~~___
    I’ve been factory resetting and rebooting for more than a week. Cannot get my google home mini to work. It was working fine till a week ago. Always getting “something went wrong” or “I cannot help you with that” as the only response.
  • Very glitchy on iOS.

    By markisbeast1181
    Given that Google makes Android, I suspect that it spends most of its time developing the Android version. Thus, the iOS version is kinda glitchy sometimes. Also, no dark mode of any sort is annoying at night. They need to work on stability and an automatic dark mode.

  • Don’t work on Apple iOS 13.3.1 wow can’t mirror and hard to find

    By Chief obits
    So I have a ide if you do it the casting and mirroring through the chrome like you do in windows thinking that will fix a lot of problems with your cromcast might even fix android 9 to full screen
  • love it but...

    By xXxXxlame
    my google home speaker will disconnect from bluetooth randomly while i’m playing music, i don’t know if it’s the app or the device itself disconnecting but either way it’s a pain in the neck.
  • Families can’t invite family members if they are using gSuite.

    By davidthecow
    You would think those with paid google accounts would be able to use all the features of those without paid google accounts. Nope. Just like assistant can’t check gSuite calendars, home won’t allow gSuite accounts to invite others to their family. Worse, google is killing off the nest app, effectively breaking functionality for nest users that have gSuite accounts and want to use the home app. It’s the worst. Also, related, the home device with the screen forces a news feed to the forefront. Sometimes you just don’t want Donald Trump news on 24/7 on you “home device.” Nest and Home are being combined prematurely, and the home app and visual interfaces on the home devices are nothing short of barely customizable, half-working, ad machines.
  • Very unintuitive and terrible to navigate

    By Maro the Great
    The Google Home App is very unintuitive and terrible to navigate. I am a power user and I have serious trouble figuring out where things are, how to add devices, group them in a room etc. Google, if you are listening, do object oriented programming. Let voic3 commands do what you want done in the app. For example: Google, creat3 a new room. And it starts the step by step. Google, place in room my smart devices, then it starts the process and you pick the smart devices.
  • WiFi

    I can’t reconnect my WiFi
  • Slooooow app

    By Fedupindc
    updating a year later - still pretty much the same. Haven’t switched back to Alexa mainly because I just don’t want to invest any more $$ in these clunky devices. This google home app is still inconsistent and frequently frustrating. You might try Alexa instead. from 2018: I have 1 google home and 6 google assistants on various floors of a townhouse. All on a 5Ghz WiFi channel. Each functions fine with voice commands. But if I want to lower or raise volume on another floor using the Google Home app, the app takes at least 1-2 mins to connect, if it ever does. Even if I’ve just managed to make it work 5 mins earlier. Getting frustrated with this. Might go back to Alexa. Though Alexa can’t seem to understand accented English even with “training.” So there’s that.
  • Linking devices

    If you try to connect the Xbox it will connect fine. It works fine when you tell google to turn off the Xbox but then I tell it to turn on and it tells me I need to reconnect the Xbox to the app.

  • Incredibly Bad

    By JohnEEADBL
    This app won’t delete devices without extreme difficulty. There doesn’t seem to be any legitimate support. What support is available is highly inaccurate. If I had not invested in a Nest Hub and a Nest Learning Thermostat, I’d delete this app and never use Google Assistant again.

  • It’s so bad

    By Nikita(Russian)
    I been using so much and I loved it but when I tried to listen it cast music on iPhone XR it just didn’t work. There wasn’t any button that said “Cast”. I couldn’t play music. I was so mad. Now I kind of hate this app.
  • Drop out

    Google home mini does ok, but drops music a lot
  • Shopping list

    By Gwennieboo
    Little irritating after the last update that I have to go through my account then settings just to access my shopping list. It needs to go back on the homepage where it was to begin with. Very disappointing and to much to access when shopping. Just make it simple.
  • Very glitchy, poltergeisty activity

    It randomly turns on and off devices, stops music, won’t process commands half the time- ugh its becoming very frustrating.

  • Needs a watch app and better UI menus

    By Coasterbuf
    Google never knows how to keep things simple. The menus are convoluted and a bit of a mess with things strung out over multiple pages making things hard to find with obscure settings. The app also could use a watch version. My phone is not always with me. But my watch is. Would be nice to control lights and things that way.
  • Migration from the Nest to the Google Account then to the Google home is the worst

    By delano d
    This is the worst!!!! The telephone customer service reps do not know how to help you! The directions on the Nest, Goggle account and Google Home do not explain clearly the process. Google and Nest assume you that the consumer wants one account that is shared with full access to ALL your family members....NOT!!! The step of going from Nest to google account should be eliminated!!! Instead Google should have to go directly to google home. Then goggle should explain the differences of sharing an email account for google home or creating a new google email account. Plus, removing the password link access in google was a disappointment. I allow usage of my hello doorbell for family members and guest when visiting my home especially if I am not there. Removing the password link is not ideal or having different levels of access for viewing the history video is also a disappointment.
  • Bad UI

    By ederekb1
    This app has a really bad UI. It’s hard to navigate and not intuitive. The home controls are frankly ugly. Also lots of duplication between this app and the google assistant app.
