Nest Cam Battery does not connect to Nest app, nor is available to view on computer.

... I think Google has misled me. I'm considering returning the device as not fit for use. 

Very disappointing.


Gee thx Google!!! I'll not be using Nest again...

Unfortunately your camera, and any other Nest camera released in 2021, is no longer compatible with the Nest app or the Nest web view. Only the Google Home app works with these devices.

You guys need to fix this asap. The google home app is garbage. Been using The nest app and its cameras for nearly 10 years and it is leaps and bounds better than google home. The fact that you cant view your cameras from your computer is almost laughable. Like what the heck. Fire the person that must have "forgot" that function.

I returned mine (as have MANY others said on this forum).  I ended up buying used (Gen 1) cameras on Ebay and I'm very happy with them and the ability to continue to use the NEST app.
