Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) kicked off its annual I/O developer conference today
Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) subsidiary Google kicked off its annual I/O developer conference today, announcing all sorts of news around both hardware and software during the opening keynote. The search giant has enjoyed particular success in smart-home technology, including its popular line of smart speakers and the Home Hub that was introduced last year.
In line with rumors that Google was planning to rebrand its smart-home offerings, the company has just confirmed that it is indeed consolidating all of its smart-home efforts under the Nest brand.
The Nest brand is stronger
Google hardware chief Rick Osterloh announced the rebranding on stage:
Over the past year, we’ve brought the Nest and Google teams together to deliver on our vision of the helpful home. And today we’re further simplifying things, bringing all these products together under the Nest name. As a single team, and a single product family, we’re following a set of guiding principles that reflect our commitment to putting people first.
Osterloh is referring to the corporate reshuffling that took place in early 2018, when Nest was moved out of Alphabet’s Other Bets segment and back under the Google umbrella . It didn’t really make much sense to have two separate divisions working on similar products, and Nest already has a strong brand in smart-home products anyway.
The “helpful home” represents an evolution of Google’s smart-home strategy, hoping to make the devices more proactively helpful with Google Assistant.
