Aizaz was the first person to get a byline on his blog on technology from his home in Bannu in 2017. Then, he went on to a career in breaking things professionally at my electric sparks which is where he eventually took over the kit as a hardware editor. Today, as the senior editor of hardware for my electric sparks, he spends time reporting about the most recent developments in the hardware industry and technology. If he's not reporting on hardware or electronics, you'll see him trying to be as remote from the world of technology as possible through camping in the wild.

Announced in March as part of a flurry of updates, the Google Home app has now widely rolled out the new events Feed tab.

The updated Home Feed tab will automatically show the newest and most important events in your home. Here you’ll also find ways to get more out of your devices and improve your home setup.

The goal of this redesign is to show more “Recent and relevant updates” by replacing the feed of cards grouped into several sections with a compact list – each Smart Home event is accompanied by an icon, one-line summary, day/date, and description. 

A tap opens the alert, and the overflow menu lets you Dismiss, Hide that type of event, or Customize Updates (Feed customization settings) in general. Camera alerts are accompanied by image previews, while “History” is in the top-left corner. When there’s nothing new, you’ll see a “Quiet day at home / No updates for you at this time” background.

The update automatically sorts your home’s recent and most important events in an updated clutter free layout. Grouped events will help you understand what happened around the same time instead of scrolling through a list of repetitive events.

Compared to the redesigned device grid, the new Google Home Feed tab is only widely rolling out today. The rollout started several weeks ago, and you’ll be greeted by an introductory prompt. It appeared on all Android and iOS devices that we checked this morning. 

Moving forward, the Google Home app will be updated for Android tablets with a navigation rail.
