Google has introduced a new update to the Google Home app, allowing users to import Wi-Fi networks managed by the Google Wifi app to the Home app (via 9to5Google.)
This repositioning of the Google Home app as the hub for all of your Google smart home devices narrows the gap between Google Home and the Google Wifi app. One could say that it even limits (or eliminates) the necessity of the Google Wifi app, which has not received a significant update in age and still retains the old design styles of the material.

In addition to importing, a user can now manage advanced settings which 9to5Google notes contain “DNS, WAN, LAN, UPnP, IPV6, DHCP IP backup, Port Management and Network Mode.”; It’s basically everything you need for the older Wifi app.
Now, the update is directly for the Google Home app in the Play Store with version 2.26. Google first dropped the update to the iOS app Google Home, citing:
Import your Wi-Fi network from the Google Wifi app to manage your network and other connected devices in one place. Use Google Assistant to do things like pause Wi-Fi, check your internet speed, and show your guest Wi-Fi password on smart screens.
On Android, it is ending up in batches, so it may take a while before it hits your device.
