With all new features just added and Public Preview now accepting invite requests, there's all kinds of fun Home Automation possibilities at your fingertips. Here’s some ways you can join in on the fun:

  • Hop in on a fun discussion topic  in the Home Automation forum. Here’s our most recent one: What do you tell your smart home to do?
  • Start your own automation discussion, or share an automation with us, by creating a post with the appropriate label. With the holidays around the corner, we would love to hear how you use Home Automation features to brighten up your home and create holiday-related routines.

You say above that "The Google Home app got an upgrade." That's not exactly accurate. The upgraded Google Home app is out for "Public Preview" only, and many of us who signed up to have access have yet to receive an invite.

Hello! I recently migrated from Nest to Google and since doing so have been unable to connect my sensor with my Nest Learning Thermostat. It tells me to "find a closer spot and try again", but no matter where I move it, it still will not connect (even had it in the same room as the thermostat. I tried the trouble shooting guidelines on Google and replaced battery and still nothing. Any advise other than buy a new sensor? Thanks!

I seem to have two TV’s on my home app although I have only ‘registered’ one and I can’t seem to be able to delete the one that says it’s off-line. How do I remove the unwanted TV. I’ve tried touching and holding the ‘tile’ but I just get a message that it’s off-line, any help would be appreciated, cheer’s Fennster
