Change person's name in face library (Nest Aware)

Community Member

When using facial recognition on my Nest Doorbell (battery) it mixes up my two daughters. I'd like to simply "move" a picture from daughter 1 to 2 to make sure I have the right photos in the right library for each person. Following instructions from Google here says:




When I click on a picture, the only option I get is to delete the picture, no option to change the name on that specific picture, just change the name of the whole "folder/library" for that specific person.

Any solution to this?

Yep that’s how it works. The instructional steps are worded a bit funny but you can only delete a photo or change the name of the entire library for a given person. The option to rename individual photos or move individual photos is not available (yet).


Only solution for now is to delete the wrong photo.

Disappointing, but thanks for your reply. I guess I have to continue deleting and hopefully Google algorithm will eventually see the difference between my kids.
