Google Home app gets a redesign
In the Google Home app you bring all your smart devices together. Now there is a redesign, which accelerates the control of the devices directly on the start page.
Google Home App – Redesign of the device controls on the home page
The current start page of the Google Home app shows the connected devices as icons in the respective room. To make further adjustments such as volume or similar, you must first click on the device. After that, for example, you can adjust the volume.
In version 2.49 (currently 2.48) there will be an “updated home screen” to “customize your devices with a few taps”.
- Find what you’re looking for quickly, dim your compatible lights and change music volume on the fly. Tap to turn a device on or off, swipe left or right to make adjustments, and long press for more controls.

After the update, the start page will consist of rectangular tiles with rounded corners, similar to the device controls in the quick settings.
Mishaal Rahman has already unlocked the new UI with version 2.49 via sideload.
