You can migrate your Nest Account to a Google Account (https://support.google.com/googlenest/answer/9297676). We did so almost 3 years ago.

However, our older Google Nest cameras and doorbells that were installed in the Google Nest app still only have partial functionality in the Google Home app, and full history for these cameras and doorbells is still viewed in the Google Nest app.

I migrated from Nest to Google a few years back as well and there are (2) unhappy surprised that happen.

#1  You can ONLY use a gmail email account.  if you are using anything else it won't work.

#2 You loose the ability to have motion alerts sent to your email address. It becomes App-only based alerts.

@EdmondB Are you an AI Robot?   First of all what I wrote was not a suggest but 2 drawbacks.  And #2 I literally sent it 2 minutes before you asked if the end user had tried it.   REALLY?

Hey everyone,

@EmptyNester, sorry about that I wasn’t able to check the time frame of your response and your first comment is actually correct, which is one of the requirements on migrating a Nest account to Google. 

Best,
