You don't need to make any changes if you already use the new skill. 

The latest Google Nest skill for Alexa allows you to control all your Nest thermostats, cameras, and doorbells. Note that the skill only works with migrated Google accountsAfter migrating your account to Google, you can use the Google Home App to create routines and custom scripts to automate your home. You can use the script editor as well, now available in Public Preview.
