It’s probably not the biggest news of the day, but after Google announced that they’d be acquiring Nest for $3.2 billion back January, the smart thermostats that put Nest on the map are now available for purchase in the Google Play Store. It’s really not surprising, and probably just the tip of the iceberg in Google’s plan for home automation.
We can’t wait to see what becomes of this marriage — which didn’t become officially official until February — but a new hardware OEM Google now has at their disposal, they’ll either come up with super cool gadgets to help better our lives, or rule over us with their robot army. Only product missing is the Nest Protect, but they still have a few bugs to work out first. You can find the Nest Learning Thermostat for $250. Link provided below.
