I am still trying to get my email changed so I can use my google nest but cringe every time I think about calling nest support tech cause they hook you up with workers from the Philippines and they keep losing internet connection any help on someone else I can get ahold of to get this finished I love paying for something I can't use .

I have always bee a fan of Google!  However, the Google Router is my nemesis.  I have explored every route possible and am at a loss as to how to move forward.  This device is archaic.  How is it possible to have both 2.4GHz an 5 GHz bands and not be able to temporarily over-ride the 5 GHz band?  This is ludicrous and I have spent additional money to by products for a work-a-round just to connect my Atomi Smart String lights.  I have communicated and spent numerous hours with Atomi, Google, T-Mobile, Spectrum, Best Buy customer service.  The bottom line, the lights won't connect.  I get a "failed" connection! Go to your Router and over-ride the 5GHz band .  I am back to square one.  I think Google and Nest should have anticipated this problem when merging.  Now I am at the point of re-investing in a router with all the capabilities I need to install my lights.  An expensive solution, Google!

september announced new doorbell in 2022. keep seeing huge discounts, assume they don't want to launch with current stock of non-working battery (in cold) and extremely old wired version.  eight months later nothing.

nest/home app still in flux.

i'm done, moving on.  ill keep the thermostat and just go another route for camera and other needs.  all we wanted is an update or roadmap.

I was forced now to update and now I can throw my google nest in the bin. I cannot cast my Homey dashboard anymore and it was the only reason I purchased it. Now I have to turn to Alexa.
