Alphabet today said it is putting its Nest and Google hardware teams together under a single roof. Since August 2015, Nest and Google have existed as separate entities under the Alphabet parent company. Moving forward, Google believes the two will work best together and thus the Nest team is being returned to Google. "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," said Rick Osterloh, Google senior vice president of hardware, in a blog post. "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." Google says Nest has doubled the size of its hardware portfolio over the last year, while Google has sold tens of millions of Google Home products. Pairing Nest's smart home products with Google's AI-based personal assistant is a sound business plan. Nest CEO Marwan Fawaz will report to Osterloh.
