Previously in the Google Home app, when you went to Cameras, you'd get a list of cameras, and only cameras with wired power would automatically live view. One press on a battery powered camera would show its estimated battery life (in percentage, and days/weeks/months). This was useful as I could easily see which of my 10 cameras needed charging soon.
In the new Home app, when you go to Cameras, you get a live view of every camera, which wastes their battery. Pressing a camera takes you to another live view and its activity history, but the only battery life indicator you get is an icon of about 3 possible states, which is next to useless. Now I have to go further down into the settings of each individual camera to see the real battery life.
Is there a page I can go to in the new Home app that will easily show the estimated battery life of each camera in one place like the old Home app had?
