Nest To Collaborate With Hardware Team of Google
Google’s head of hardware Rick Osterloh announced on February 7, 2018, that Nest will collaborate with hardware team of Google.
Smart homes make families feel safer with connected security systems. They help user to save energy and money with intelligent thermostats by offering hands-free help and answers to various questions with voice-activated smart assistants. In 2014, Google acquired Nest for around US$ 3.2 billion, the hardware company involved in offering Nest Cam and the Nest thermostat. Google opted to keep Nest running as its own independent operation. Nest brand will be continuing on within Google, living alongside the Google Home brand.
Google is focusing on bringing more skilled workforce under one roof. In February 2018, the company announced a deal worth US$ 1.1 billion acquiring a large part of HTC’s hardware operation. After collaboration of Nest with Google, the team has experienced incredible momentum. The company doubled hardware portfolio in 2017, which resulted in marketing and selling of more devices in 2017 than the previous two years combined. Meanwhile, Google has sold tens of millions of products for the home in just the last year, as more people use the Google Assistant to listen to their favorite music, control their connected devices, and get useful information about their day.
“The goal is to supercharge Nest’s mission: to create a more thoughtful home, one that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it. By working together, we’ll continue to combine hardware, software and services to create a home that’s safer, friendlier to the environment, smarter and even helps you save money—built with Google’s artificial intelligence and the Assistant at the core,” said Marwan Fawaz, CEO, Nest.
