Hey everyone, 

Many of you have been using the Google Wifi app since we first launched it in 2016, and we’ve consistently worked to make it better and easier for you to keep your home connected. During that time, so much has changed within the smart home space and when we started many of you had to leverage several apps to properly control the products in your home. 

Well, we’re here to help streamline how you control your smart home and we have some great news to share — we’ll be moving Google Wifi control to the Google Home app. Now you can easily control and manage all of your connected products in one app while enabling routines across them. You can easily migrate your Google Wifi network into the Google Home app, where you’ll be able to control your Wi-Fi network and other connected products in one place (which many of you already have these last few months). 

Last year, we focused on fulfilling your requests for how Wi-Fi should work at home. With the Google Home app, you’ll get new features like: 

We encourage you to migrate to the Google Home app soon; starting on May 25th you’ll no longer be able to set up a network, add an additional wifi point, or change your network settings in the Google Wifi app. You’ll still be able to use the Wifi app in view-only form, but for any changes needed to be made, you’ll need to migrate your network to the Google Home app. The Wifi app will be removed from the Play Store and App Store in June.

You can stay up to date and learn more about our plans for the Wifi app by visiting our help center. For help migrating your network to the Home app, please visit here

As always, thank you for being on this journey with us as we continue improving the helpful home! 

Thanks, 
Rachel

How about no? Can we opt out of Google Home? I don't want your software in my home and I'll smash the Google Wifi to bits before I do this. Thanks!

Thanks for the great Wifi functionality in the Google Home app.  While I liked the cleaner look & feel of the Google Wifi app, it will be nice to have that info & control in the same place as my other home automation tools, in the Google Home app. 

The one thing I don't see in the Google Home app is an indication of whether a Wifi device has a Wired Connection or not. Is it hidden in there somewhere, or is that something that will be added? It's very useful for debugging to know when the wired connection is working or not.  Thanks!

I got the email to migrate today and followed the instructions.  Problem is, there is no link "import Google Wifi network" when I tap the "+" in the top left corner.  Neither is it in the "Add and manage/Add to home".  Looks like someone failed to add the link at Google.

So because I want my kids to be able to control lights, they'll also get full control of the wifi? The parental controls was one of the reasons I got Google wifi.  This level is oversight makes me wonder how many employees that work with Google Home actually have children, especially teenagers. There are specific things that should be behind an admin wall, and network administrative access is one of them.

I have a blocker that prevents me from migrating my Google WiFi controls to Google Home - key members of my home use G Suite accounts for their primary account.

If I were to migrate to Google Home, my understanding is that my spouse will no longer have the ability to manage our Google Wifi because she isn't able to be added as a household member in Google Home as a G Suite user.

Is my understanding correct?

I WANT TO OPT OUT! Can I just go back?  I really really dislike going through all the google messaging before I can view my cameras. Am I angry? Yes! It's like being tortured until I sign up for something I don't want! Google does not believe in win/win way of treating customers so why do I want to have anything at all to do with Google? Old weary way of doing business ..

As an earlier poster has said, after clicking on the + sign in upper L there is no link to import Google WiFi network. 

Now what?

This is a huge step backwards.  I am sure I am not the only person to point out that this setup is not acceptable for families.  As a parent of a young teen, I want to allow my child to control home devices while still maintaining parental control over internet usage.  That is not too much to ask. I've already invested thousands in Google products.  It's very frustrating to see them get worse with every update and feel powerless to stop it.  I just want to hold on to the functionality I already have.  STOP TAKING THINGS AWAY

No. This is not "great news." Because Google was either too cheap, or too lazy to engineer the new Google Home app for *backward compatibility*, come June, my Google WiFi will become three, white, round paperweights!

I am unable to download the Google Home app because "This item is not compatible with your device." Backward compatibility is NOT tough. It just takes a little more time and effort. Very badly done, Google.
