Google is reportedly planning to revamp its smart devices app, which supports Google assistant. A news report by 9to5Google mentioned that the company will redesign the Google Home app. With this upgrade, it will be faster to control the smart gadgets from the main tab. According to the news report, the upgrade is very similar to the device controls on Android 11+.
The website mentioned that as per the release notes for version 2.49, the updated Google Home app will help people adjust their devices with fewer taps.
Some of the features that can be easily maneuver after the upgrade are: a user can quickly find what they are looking for, dim the compatible lights, and change music volume. Some other features, which can be operated with ease are, tap to turn a device on or off, slide left or right to make adjustments and then long press for more controls.
Instead of presenting the connected devices entirely by large icons, which are the same as the real-life object, the Google Home grid is now switching to tiles that are shaped like rounded rectangles. The icons, however, are still available inside it but they have become fully interactive buttons.
Under the new upgrade, an individual will be able to turn on and off the lights and play and pause media with just a tap. One can also slide left or right to make brightness adjustments.
When will Google Home grid redesign get released
As per the report by the news website, Google Home’s iOS release mentioned that this feature will roll out “over the next few weeks.”
