How to connect, update, and troubleshoot your Google Home Wi-Fi network | by Tapaan Chauhan

Your Google Home or Google Assistant speaker listens intently to your every word to deliver music requests, smart home control, and answers to questions — but only if it’s connected to the internet.

This connection should be formed during the first setup of your Google Nest Mini, Nest Audio, or Nest Hub, however, if you’re changing Wi-Fi networks or reconnecting after the initial setup, you’ll need to go through the menus of the Google Home app.

However, as long as you’re trying to connect your speaker to the same network as your phone or tablet, this should be rather simple. When completing the instructions below, have your Wi-Fi password and name handy.

You’ll be asked to link your speaker to a Wi-Fi network during setup, but you can always go into the settings menu of each item and connect if it has forgotten your network for whatever reason.

We’ll teach you how to accomplish both below, but first, you’ll need to download the Google Home app on your phone or tablet from the App Store or Google Play store.

During the initial setup, you’ll need to connect to the internet through Wi-Fi.

1. Launch the Google Home application.

2. Select Set up the device from the + sign in the upper left corner.

3. Navigate through the choices, selecting your device’s location and name.

4. Select your network from the list of available Wi-Fi networks, input the password, and hit Connect.

5. After a few seconds of shaking hands, the app will notify you that the gadget is linked.

After initial setup, connect to Wi-Fi.

1. Launch the Google Home application.

2. From your list of rooms (or the Local devices section in Account), choose the device you wish to connect to Wi-Fi, then select the settings cog in the top-right.

3. Go to the Wi-Fi tab and choose your network from the drop-down menu, then input the password and push Connect.

Changing the Wi-Fi your Google Home and Assistant devices connect to could not be easier, whether you’ve changed your network or moved house. Also, make sure your phone or tablet is connected to the same network as the speaker you’re attempting to connect to.

1. Launch the Google Home application.

2. Tap the settings cog in the top-right corner of the device you want to change the network of.

3. In the Device Information list, tap the Wi-Fi option, then Forget Network.

4. You’ll be directed back to the main screen of the Home app, where you may connect your device to a new network using the procedures explained above.

The procedures above should allow your speaker to connect to your Wi-Fi network, but we’ve found that this isn’t always the case. If your Google Home is unable to connect to Wi-Fi, try the following steps:

  • Wait 30 seconds after restarting your router.
  • Restore factory settings to your Google Home or Assistant-enabled device.
  • Your router’s firmware should be updated.
  • Ascertain that your speaker and phone/tablet are within range of the router.
  • Make sure your phone or tablet is connected to the same network as the speaker you’re attempting to connect to.
