How to scroll through Nest Camera feed on Google Home?

With everything migratimg to Google Home, how do I scroll through my feed like I can in the Nest app?  I'm talking not just events, but the entire feed, since that's what I pay for.  How?

When you open the Home App, at the bottom right is an icon for Notifications/Recent Events. If you scroll to the bottom of the Recent Events, you will see "See all History", click on that and you will see all history of events. I know you said not just events, but I'm not sure other than when you open the home app, you can click on the big Camera icon and see all the "feeds" live from your camera. Other than that, I don't know what else Nest Aware has as a "Feed" or stores. I also use the nest app and have Nest Aware, but I don't know what you mean by entire feed?

Scrolling through 24/7 history (in the Google Home app) for the new Google Nest Camera Battery (if you have a Google power cable to enable 24/7 history) is really slow, but if you click on "History" and then on "Full History", I've found that you can pick an event that is closest to the time period you want to view, and then scroll back and forth from there.  If you want to scroll through 24/7 history for existing Nest cameras and doorbells, you have to do that in the Google Nest app.  Hope that helps.

Hello,

 

I have the same issue. I only see clips of events and not the full history like in the nest app.

I prefer to see the full history, even if there is no event. 
how do I view this?

Do you have an active Nest Aware subscription? If you don't you can learn more about it here. If you are not seeing your full event history, you have the Nest Hello Battery Doorbell, or the Nest Cam Battery. 24/7 Streaming and full history is not available. You can learn more about the entire process and specifics here. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

Best Regards,

Brad.

I’m also having this problem. I pay for nest aware subscription and so I have access to recorded footage for more than 24 hours. I can easily scrub and view it on the nest app, but can’t figure out a way to do this on the google home app. This is especially frustrating given that I pay for the service but they are forcing a switch to google home.
