Tech giant Google is inviting owners of Nest products to join the testing phase of a new design of its Home app, an online listing reveals, suggesting users could soon see a revamped experience on the service .
As spotted by a Reddit user, the company is “recruiting a group of highly committed testers who are ready to help Google (Nest is testing an unreleased product,” reports Android Central.
The announcement was posted on the Centercode product testing platform. The company didn’t specify the product in question, but said testing would focus on a “next-generation design” of the Google Home app.
The program is open to anyone who has one of the best Google Home compatible devices, including “thermostats, Wifi, speakers, screens, cameras, doorbells, locks, Nest Protect (smoke detectors) and Chromecasts”.
The report mentions that users willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement can participate in the testing phase. However, it’s unclear what the new design will look like, but it looks like it will significantly improve the app experience.
The tests come six months after Google introduced changes to the Home app, including a new device control interface that replaced device icons with interactive toggles.
