Earlier this year, Google renamed its smart home & # 39; Hub & # 39; for the & # 39; Nest Hub & # 39; It was the first step to rebranding their smart home appliances under the Nest name, and there was speculation that the original Home speaker could be included. Google has put the rumors to rest and confirmed to us that Google Home is sticking to its original name.

It was not a strange suggestion that Google Home could be sold under the Nest banner, especially after the more expensive Home Hub was renamed. Google itself seemed to confirm the change when the Google Store began referencing the speaker as "Nest Home." We contacted the company after the text was discovered and a spokesperson confirmed that the change was an error and is in the process of being corrected.

It is still possible that a continuation of Google Home may be Nest branded, but we have seen no evidence that a new model is in development. If a new speaker is released, we hope it matches our wish list.
