The Google Main app received an upgrade with a new appearance for the home tab early this year. Although the recently implemented changes to the app’s main tab have made it simpler for users to manage their networked smartphones, it appears that Google is not yet finished with the revamp.
A “new generation design of the Google Home app” is supposedly in the works, and the firm is actively recruiting beta testers to try it out before its official release.
Cerntercode is assisting the Google Nest Trusted Tester program in finding “a group of highly engaged testers that are eager to help Google Nest test an unannounced product,” as stated in a recent Reddit post (via 9to5Google).
The testing program, according to the page advertising for participants, “will focus on the next generation design of the Google Home App.” The page doesn’t give any hints regarding the next-gen design, but it states that testers who participate in the program must sign an NDA (NDA).
To participate in the program, prospective testers must own a Google Nest product, such as a thermostat, networking device, speaker, display, camera, doorbell, lock, Nest Protect (smoke alarms), or Chromecast.
They must also use “either the Google Home app or the Nest app” to manage these devices. Furthermore, a list of requirements for interested participants is highlighted on the recruitment website.
If you fit these criteria and are interested in testing the next generation of the Google Home app, visit the recruitment page by clicking the source link below, sign up with Centercode, and begin testing the app. A nondisclosure agreement (NDA) will be required of those whose applications are further progressed.
We don’t know much about the redesigned Google Home app, but we should find out more in the next few weeks. Once we have more information, we will share it with you.
