Last year we committed to bringing a desktop experience to our users, and we wanted to share a quick update on that commitment.
This week, we’ll be rolling out a Google Home update on home.google.com that lets you view your Nest camera and doorbell feeds on the web.* You can easily check in on live views in full screen, zoom in to see more details, view camera status, and more all from your web browser. Google Home for web will be available as a preview as we continue to work on improving it and adding more popular camera features.
*Note: If you don’t have access right away, continue to check back and let us know if you still don’t have access next week.
How does Google Home for web work?
Go to home.google.com on your desktop computer.
Sign in with the same Google account you use in the Google Home app.
Immediately view live streams from your cameras.
Toggle between a single camera view and multi-camera view.
What can I live stream?
View live streams of all your Nest cameras and doorbells.
View the live stream of one camera at a time.
View full-screen to see more details of what’s happening.
What can I control?
Turn cameras on or off.
Wake up battery cameras when they are inactive (Note: They may time out to save battery).
View status of cameras: on/off, inactive, and offline.
We’re eager to hear what you think of Google Home for web as we build it out, so please use the Send Feedback link in the menu at home.google.com to share your thoughts with us. For more info on getting set up, check out our support center.
We hope you enjoy these new updates!
