With the latest major revision in 2019, the Google Home app simplified to having two primary screens from four. Google Home now has settings to customize the “Feed” tab to “select the types of events” that can be displayed.
A lot rolled today, there is a new button at the top left of the top of Google Home’s second tab. The “Feed Customization Settings” page starts with “Entire Home” where Google lists two categories:
- Household routines: Home and away routine
- Wi-Fi: Network status, Wi-Fi activity
“Cameras” will list the devices available in your home, with features that vary by model. Nest Cam on the Hub Max only shows “Set Events”
These new Google Home settings can make the Feed tab less overwhelming to use with the two Priority and Recent events sections already busy. Discover suggestions at the bottom are unchanged, but Google updated the header font for each section to be bolder.
Google first announced this feature last month with Home 2.34 – along with Google / Nest Wifi statistics in real time and Nest Hub (2nd generation) support, but it has now been rolled out (server-side update) on Android and iOS after this week’s 2.35 update that revealed a new Nest device.
