Google has owned Nest for some time but it has been run as a separate company, Google has now announced that going forward Nest will be part of Google and is now known as Google Nest.
The company revealed this at their Google I/O Conference last week, they also unveiled the new Nest Hub Max.
Since Nest joined Google’s hardware team last year, we’ve been working to make the smart home a little less complicated, and well, more helpful. A home where products work together to help you feel comfortable and safe, keep an eye on things when you’re away, and connect you to friends and family. Today, we’re committing to that goal by bringing the Home products under the Nest brand. Our first step, as Google Nest, is to go beyond the idea of a “smart home,” and to focus instead on creating a “helpful home.”
