The Nest thermostat, which learns heating and cooling schedules to adjust temperatures automatically, was listed on Google Play’s support page. However, Google quickly pulled the Nest listing. When it was up, the listing showed the device as being available in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada, reports Droid Life.
The Nest thermostat listing showing up suggest that Google does indeed plan to start selling the product through Google Play soon. The listing was likely put early by mistake, but it also could have been an effort by Google to build hype around the product.
Google acquired Nest in January. The purchase of the startup came as a surprise as it was founded by former Apple (AAPL) workers Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers. However, Google may have bought Nest to keep it out of Apple’s hands.
GOOG shares were up slightly as of Tuesday morning.
