Unify Customers, we have great (BIG) news! Some of you may have already heard that Google and Nest are joining forces to become Google Nest. Unify is truly excited about this change. As an Elite Pro with the program, we’ve been aware of this merger and its benefits for quite some time. This will make integration easier and more streamlined by moving two platforms into one. Yes, if you already have Alexa in your home, you will still be able to use it as you do now. Nothing will change.
Google wants to unify efforts around third-party connected home devices under a single developer platform – a one-stop shop for both developers and customers to build a more helpful home. To accomplish this, they will be winding down “Works with Nest” on August 31, 2019, and delivering a single unified experience through the “Works with Google Assistant” program. In other words, Nest is becoming part of Google. Instead of two apps, you will just have one.
During this transition, Unify will keep you informed by email as things change and will be available if assistance is needed. Stay tuned for an email from us! (You can make sure you’re signed up at the link below.)
