Google looked to sell its Nest connected-home unit in 2016, just two years after buying the high-profile startup for $3.2 billion, according to Reuters.
Alphabet had an internal project known as Project Amalfi, that looked to sell Nest in early 2016. It failed to find a buyer, however, and former Nest employees now complain of less creative freedom after founder Tony Fadell's departure as CEO last year.
The March 2014 deal that brought Nest to Google caused a stir in the tech industry because Fadell helped create the iPhone while at Apple.
Yet the acquisition of a business that makes internet-connected thermostats and other home hardware by a company that gets nearly all revenue from online ads came before the arrival of Alphabet CFO Ruth Porat in 2015.

For the quarter ended in March, the operating loss of the Other Bets businesses widened to $855 million from $774 million a year earlier.
Earlier this month Alphabet dealt off two robotics units, one of which, Boston Dynamics, had been led by a high-profile executive with a stellar track record.
