Google is working on the merger of the brands Nest and Google. As such, an announcement has been posted on Nest.com that will direct you to the Google Store for all future news and purchases. Currently only Nest Aware is left.
At I / O, Google announced its plan to merge Nest and Google brands and shut down services like "Works with Nest". The company renamed the Google Home Hub to Nest Hub and quit Nest Hub Max. Oddly enough, some products, such as Google Home and Google Home Mini, have not made the transition. However, this could change in the future.
And now, as part of the transition, Google has announced its intention to close Nest.com. If you go to the website today, you'll be notified that Nest.com is switching to the Google Store. In the future you will find new products there and make your purchases.
Nest.com continues to act as the hub for Nest Aware, Google's subscription service for its security cameras and doorbell. And you can use the website to sign in to your Nest account, at least until they've convinced you to convert to a Google Account. [9to5Google]
