Google Home + Nest = Google Nest.

Google has closed down the Nest website and integrated its smart home products into the Google Store. But you can still use the Nest site to sign in to an existing account, manage your Nest Aware subscriptions and view your Nest order history.

Google and Nest combined into a single smart home brand called Google Nest in May, with Google announcing the change at the Google I/O conference for developers.

"Nest.com has moved to the Google Store," says the notice now on Nest.com, which was spotted earlier by DroidLife. "Nest and Google Home have joined together as Google Nest. Moving forward, you can learn about and buy all Nest products in one place: the Google Store."

At the moment, the only products carrying the new Google Nest name are the Google Nest Hub Max, a smart display with a 10-inch screen and camera, and the Google Home Hub, Google's original smart display. Google is expected to rebrand other products as well.

The Google Home Hub is now called the Google Nest Hub.

Other products available in the combined store include the Nest Hub Max , Nest Hub, Google Home, Google Home Mini , Nest Learning Thermostat , Nest Hello Doorbell, Nest Cam Indoor, Nest Cam Outdoor and Chromecast Ultra .

Google acquired Nest in 2014 and initially ran it as a separate business under Google parent company Alphabet. Nest was then absorbed by Google early in 2018, and Nest had been folded in further and merged with Google's smart home division by July of that year.
