Google is finally bringing an old feature to the new Nest Camera. Starting this week you can stream live videos A Connect Nest cameras and video doorbells to your TV using Chromecast with Google TV. Google announced the feature Blog post on the Google Nest Community Forum Wednesday morning.
“What or what?” You ask. “Can’t you do it already?” Well, yes and no. It was possible to view video feeds from older Nest cameras – such as the Google Nest doorbell (wired) and Nest Cams are now being discontinuedand Nest Hub Max’s camera—on the biggest screen in your home.
But, as I emphasized Testing my new Nest Cam (indoor, wired)None of the new Google Cameras can cast to Chromecast devices. (All Nest cameras can broadcast both Google SmartScreen And Amazon Echo SmartScreen)
The blog post confirms that “all Nest cameras and Nest doorbells are supported, including our latest devices released in 2021: Nest Cam (outdoor or indoor, battery)And Nest Cam (indoor, wired)And Nest Cam meets Spotlight And Nest Doorbell (Battery). ”
However, Google only bundles the new Chromecast with Google TV as supported, so we don’t yet know if it will work on other Chromecast and Google TV devices.
The new integration will roll out this week, according to Google. and nothing is activated. Just make sure your Chromecast is connected to the same WiFi network as the cameras You can either use the Google TV Voice Remote by pressing the Assistant button and saying “Show me the front door camera.” Or ask your Nest smart display or speaker to “Hey Google, show the front door camera on your TV.”
Now all we need is for Google to continue We promise to add a web portal option The new Nest cameras will eventually have the same features as the old Nest cameras
