Almost every time I try to view my Nest outdoor cams, I have to sign into the app using my Google account. It’s really frustrating when I just want to check if a delivery is here or something. Is this a known bug, or am I just unlucky?

Hello, Jeremy Clarke.
Sorry for my late response. Thank you for all of your patience while waiting for a reply. I just wanted to make sure that your issue is addressed. If you regularly use a different email/account for everything else, yes it may require you to sign in each time. It is best to be connected and logged into the same account if you do not want to login each time. Terribly sorry for that inconvenience!

No the issue here is that Google is trying to force you into using their apps instead of Nest’s apps by wearing you down thru inconvenience
