Adding 2nd Generation Indoor Camera to nest app?

Can I add the 2nd generation indoor wired camera to the nest app (as opposed to the Google home app)?

Unfortunately, you cannot.  Google Nest decided that the new Google Nest cameras and doorbells released starting in 2021 would work only in the Google Home app and NOT in the Google Nest app or on the home.nest.com website.

Thanks for confirming. Seems odd you have a ‘nest’ camera that doesn’t work with the nest app.

Hi there,

 

Thank you for your feedback on this, I fully understand the frustrations of not having your new Nest cams in the Nest app like you may be used too. However, the new Nest cameras and doorbells are exclusive to the Google Home app because we wanted to create an integrated experience with your speakers and displays. 

 

You can now use the Google Home web app to view your cameras and doorbells. A Nest Aware subscription applies to all of your cameras, speakers, and displays in the same home structure. Thank you for your continued patience, and support. 

 

Best regards,

Brad

On a slightly unrelated note, if you happen to find a Nest IQ indoor camera, that one you can add no problem. I recently found some at Lowe’s on clearance.

nope - it is called a NEST cam but you can't use it with NEST - go figure!
