Google is reportedly working on creating a refreshed homepage and inviting Nest product owners to participate in the beta phase of the new design of its Home app, according to online listings that show users will soon be able to enjoy the improved experience service can see.
According to a Reddit user, the company is recruiting “a group of highly dedicated testers who are willing to help Google Nest test unreleased products,” Android Central reports.
The announcement was made on the Centercode product testing platform. While Google didn’t specify the product in question, it did say that testing would focus on the “next-generation design” of the Google Home app.
The program is open to anyone with any of the best Google Home-compatible devices, including “thermostats, WiFi, speakers, cameras, locks, doorbells, monitors, Nest Protect (smoke detectors), and Chromecast.”
The report mentioned that users willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement can participate in the trial period. However, it’s unclear what the new design will look like, but it sounds like it will significantly improve the app experience.
The test comes six months after Google made changes to the Home app, including a new device control interface that replaces device icons with interactive switches.
