*Following the restructuring of Google, an umbrella company called Alphabet was created, with the purpose of separating Google’s various businesses from their core business of online services. Before a part of Google, Nest has become a company within the Alphabet corporation. This move is understood to differentiate Google’s various ventures without being dependent on the Google branding.
