Over the past month, the new “Google Nest” replaced Nest.com with the Google Store and gained a new Help Center. The unified brand has now killed its Wear OS and Apple Watch apps for home control right from your wrist.
Released yesterday, version 5.37 of the Nest app coincides with the deprecation of the wearable apps on both platforms. On Wear OS, opening the app will result in a “Nest is no longer supported for Wear OS” prompt, with users advised to uninstall.
The apps allowed you to view notifications, control the temperature of Nest Thermostats, switch to Home/Away modes, and more.
The Nest app listing on the App Store has removed any mention of the client, while only screenshots remain on the Play Store. Support pages, however, are still available on the Google Nest Help Center. On Apple’s platform, this leaves Google Keep as the only available watchOS app.
We’ve reached out to Google for a comment on the removal of the Nest watch apps, and whether they are returning in one form or another. The company would ideally release a Google Home client, but Assistant voice commands might be the recommended replacement.
