Device list doesn't show device name/type

I can see the connected devices over WiFi in the home app. But why it cannot tell/show some devices' name or type? This seems to be especially true for iOS devices.

I had other systems before and they do correctly show the name and type of my iOS devices.

And, if the system cannot recognize some devices, at least please provide an option to let user name a device by themselves so that we can easily identify it later.

Hey Hangaround,


Thanks for posting. You are able to see the list of devices connected to your network through the ‘Devices’ section in the Google Home app. More information about each device is available in the ‘Info’ tab in that same section. This article should help you out. 

You can also change the name of the devices connected to your network. Here’s how:
Open the Google Home app.

Tap Wi-Fi > Devices.

Tap the device that you want to change the name of.

Rename your device. Your changes will auto-save.

You can also refer to this article for more details. 
 

Best,
Abi
