The last time Google launched a complete redesign to its smart home-centric Google Home app, it was met with a mixed reception.

If you've got an Android phone with the Google Home app installed, click this link (opens in new tab) from your phone and you should be taken to a signup page to be notified when the preview is available.

Google calls these groups Spaces, and they can be used to group the best smart home devices (opens in new tab) by room, by category, or by something more arbitrary like "cat," which Google says could contain your pet cams, cat feeder, vacuum, and air purifier.

Google also says it's finally bringing the most requested Nest Cam features from the old dedicated Nest app over to Google Home, as well, including a brand new camera UI that features better timeline scrubbing, event management, and more.

New devices that are brought into your home, especially ones that support the Matter (opens in new tab) protocol, will be able to fast pair with the new Google Home app with a single click.

And since this is happening all through the Google Home app instead of at the OS level, Google says billions of Android devices are instantly able to fast pair with Matter devices as of this latest update.

Lastly, Google Home will finally be accessible on more screens than just your smartphone or your Google Nest smart display.

As of this update, a new Wear OS Google Home app is finally becoming available (although limited to Wear OS 3), and Google Home can also be accessed online from any device via the Google Home website (opens in new tab).

Google's battery-powered Nest Cam is finally worth its weight in gold thanks to more than a year of quality updates and Google Home software that no longer sucks.
