Is there a web interface for Google Home that does not require an Android emulator to run it as a Play Store app? Our Nest Thermostat has a web interface, and we were told that web interface is going away very soon, because Google has integrated it into Google Home. This is a critical issue for us. It's enough to make you Go Bananas! Thanks
There is no web interface for the Google Home app. Google Nest's Vice President promised one in 2022 in this Sept. 29, 2021 blog post, but there has been no update whatsoever since:
"...we’ve also been working on rolling out a desktop experience for the Google Home app, so the new Nest cameras and doorbell feeds can be viewed and controlled from there. This will launch in 2022."
I'm just another Google Nest customer that's been waiting ever since.

Thank you so much for reaching out. We do appreciate the feedback as we are always looking to improve our products. You can submit your feedback through the Google Home app to our Team directly as well. Please let me know if you have any questions from here, as I would be happy to review.
The lack on a web interface is problematic, especially for those of us who are older than 40 and small phone screens are not as easy to see and use, especially compared to a web interface. When might it arrive? You're Google, wouldn't you agree there really is no excuse to not have this already?
@Jake, appreciate the help.
@Noussename, your feedback is greatly appreciated and rest assured that this has caught the attention of our team.
@GoBananas, I'd like to bump in here and make sure that you’ve seen our response. We appreciate your interest however, we don't have any news to share about a web-based control for Google Home. We're always looking for ways to improve and we'll take it as feedback.
I also suggest that you send feedback by following this link. Let me know if you have other questions or concerns, otherwise I’ll be locking this thread after 24 hours.
Can you please tell me the "magic number" of times it takes and over how many years it takes, sending feedback that actually makes something happen? I've grown weary of efforts that don't produce anything other than more suggestions to send more feedback, which does NOTHING! Awaiting a meaningful response.
I know exactly what you’re getting at and the inconvenience that you’re having is understandable. We do not have any time frame as to when this feature will be released but rest assured that we’re on it.
