Tech giant Google is inviting Nest owners to join the testing phase of a new design for its Home app, an online listing reveals, suggesting users may soon see an improved service.
As noted by a Reddit user, the company is “recruiting for a group of highly engaged testers who are willing to help Google Nest test an unreleased product,” according to Android Central.
The announcement was made on the Centercode product testing platform. The company did not specify the product in question, but said the testing will focus on the “next-generation design” of the Google Home app.
The program is open to anyone who owns any of the top Google Home-compatible devices, including “thermostats, Wifi, speakers, displays, cameras, doorbells, locks, Nest Protect (smoke alarms) and Chromecasts.”
The report states that users willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement can participate in the testing phase. However, it is not clear what the new design will look like, but it seems that it will significantly improve the experience of the app.
The testing comes six months after Google introduced changes to the Home app, including a new device control interface that replaced device icons with interactive switches.
