In Android 12, Google renames its smart home controls (again)

It’s an odd flip flop that doesn’t match what people really want: the return of the power button shortcut. Without much time left before a stable release, it seems like we’re stuck with Google’s new smart home controls after all.

Google relocated all of its smart home controls from the power menu to a new toggle in Android 12 Beta 2, and it’s getting a new — or rather, old — moniker in this week’s release. One of the most divisive changes in Android 12 has been Google’s choice to move shortcuts for all of your smart plugs and light bulbs. The shortcut was originally called “Device controls,” however in Beta 3 it was renamed “Home controls.” This week’s update reverts to its previous format.
