How do I change the Wi-Fi on my smart home?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

I can provide a detailed answer on how to change the Wi-Fi on your smart home devices. Let’s start with the steps for changing the Wi-Fi network on a Google Home speaker or display.

1. Open the Google Home app on your smartphone or tablet. Make sure your device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Google Home speaker or display.

2. In the app, you’ll see tiles for all your connected devices. Find the device you want to change the Wi-Fi network for and touch and hold its tile.

3. This will open a new screen with settings for the device. At the top right corner of the screen, you’ll see a gear icon. Tap on it to access the device settings.

4. In the device settings, you’ll find various options and information. Look for “Wi-Fi” and tap on it.

5. On the next screen, you’ll see the current Wi-Fi network that the device is connected to. To remove or forget the network, tap on the “Forget” option next to it.

6. Once you’ve forgotten the previous Wi-Fi network, you can proceed with setting up your device on the new Wi-Fi network. This will involve connecting your smartphone or tablet to the new network and following the setup steps provided by the Google Home app.

7. During the setup process, the app will guide you through connecting your device to the new Wi-Fi network. Make sure you have the network name (SSID) and password ready.

8. Follow the on-screen instructions in the app to complete the setup. This may involve entering the new Wi-Fi network details, connecting to the device’s hotspot, or using a QR code for setup.

9. Once the setup is complete, your Google Home speaker or display should be connected to the new Wi-Fi network. You can verify this by checking the device settings in the Google Home app.

That’s it! You have successfully changed the Wi-Fi network on your Google Home speaker or display. If you have multiple devices, you can repeat these steps for each device to connect them to the new network.

Remember, the process may vary slightly depending on the device and the app you’re using. However, the general steps should be similar. If you encounter any issues or need further assistance, you can refer to the device’s user manual or contact the manufacturer’s support.
