Thanks for posting here in the Google Nest Community.
Good question. Ideally, yes, you should be able to do that as long as the switches are already added in the Google Home app. If you are already in the Google Home app Public preview, you can check the steps below.
Add and manage favorites
Keep me posted.
this does not work I have activated some switches in the favorites. But there is no possibility to move the switches to another position.
When I go to edit, then I can only add another switch to the favorites.
We're sorry for the confusion. While you can manage your favorites by adding and removing devices, action, or automation on the list, we don't have a way to sort the devices you added. Once you choose them the system will sort it automatically. We're always looking for ways to improve and we'll take it as feedback.
Let us know if you have other questions or concerns otherwise, we'll go ahead and lock this thread after 24 hours.
