With the last major overhaul in 2019, Google simplified the Home app to have two primary screens from four. Google Home now has settings to customize the “Feed” tab to “choose the types of events” that can appear.
Widely rolled out today, there’s a new button in the top-left corner at the top of Google Home’s second tab. The “Feed customization settings” page starts with “Whole home” where Google lists two categories:
- Household Routines: Home & Away Routine
- Wi-Fi: Network status, Wi-Fi activity
“Cameras” will list which devices are available in your home, with capabilities varying depending on the model. The Nest Cam on the Hub Max just shows “Seen events,” like People and Motion, but the Hello video doorbell would also show Packages. Set Zones are also listed.
