The rumoured merger of the Nest and Google hardware teams is a reality today with Nest CEO Marwan Fawaz announcing the merge on the Nest blog. The move aims to make it easier for Google to add artificial intelligence software like Assistant into new Nest products. Here you'll find the latest product reviews, news, and how-tos to help you connect your surroundings to the internet in the smartest way possible. Likewise, Google Home had a stellar Holiday 2017 with regards to sales as it attempts to gain ground in the smart AI speaker market. Its next product, Nest Hello, is a smart video doorbell that is scheduled for release in March.
Fawaz told CNet that Nest has shipped more than 11 million products since 2011, when its first thermostat went on sale.
Back in 2014, Google bought Nest - the hardware company behind things like the Nest Cam and the Nest thermostat - for around $3.2 billion.
For what it's worth, the company says the goal is "to create a more thoughtful home, one that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it".
The companies had already begun to collaborate on hardware development, with Google past year testing acoustics and its speakers at a Nest facility. Originally, Nest was supposed to be the core of Google's hardware efforts, but instead Google made a decision to create a separate division to produce its Nexus, Pixel, Chromecast, and Google Home devices.
Previously, Nest operated under Alphabet's "Other Bets" group of projects.
"To build on this momentum, we're excited to bring the Nest and Google Hardware teams together". It's responsible for products like the Pixel and Google Home.
