How to create Wemo® Groups for your Google Home

Google Home allows you to quickly control your Wemo® devices just by using your voice.  Grouping your Wemo devices is recommended for easier control.  Follow the steps below if you want to: 

Create a new group
Edit or delete a group

 


Create a new group
 
With Google Home you can group your home automation devices into Rooms.  These can be the physical locations where they are or if you want to create custom rooms that group devices how you want.
 
Grouping your Wemo devices is done using the Google Home App so you won’t need the Wemo App unless you want to change a Wemo device's name.
 
Step 1:  Open your Google Home App and tap on the menu button on the upper left hand corner to bring up the Google Assistant menu.
