I just bought a Nest Camera Indoor 2nd Gen figuring it would work just like the Nest Camera Indoor 1st Gen I bought for my parents with the ability to view from the web. Viewing from the phone works some of the time, but I work in a location where you can't have cell phones. I need to be able to check on our new dog from the web. I've seen a number of post going back a while with no response from Google until they close the thread for no activity. Come on Google you can do better than that. You had the capability with the 1st Gen Cameras. I pay for the Nest Aware subscription, so its not like I'm asking for something for nothing. Please restore the previous capability or at least have the decency of a reply other than closing the thread for no activity.

I appreciate your help, MplsCustomer.
Hey there psu90,
No problem at all! There will be a Public Preview soon for Google Home for Web, so keep an eye out for it! For now, I'll go ahead and lock the thread. If you have any more questions in the future, please feel free to create a new thread.
Have a good one!
