Only want live video stream

I am considering buying a Nest Outdoor Monitoring Package with Monitor and battery camera.  All I want is live streaming video, no history.  Is this a reliable package?  I don't want to pay for a storage subscription.

Hi wanewrld00,

You don't need a Nest Aware subscription to be able to view the live stream from a camera via the Google Home app.

Have a look at the Google Nest help center link below that explains what features you will receive both with or without a subscription.

I wonder how the battery will hold up on the Google Nest Camera (Battery) that is part of this package if you livestream a lot to a Nest Hub.

We have one of the battery cameras, but have it plugged in all the time with the optional power cable, so the battery is always at 100%.

This Google Nest Help page lists Google's expectations on battery life for the battery cameras and doorbells:
