I have had nest cameras for an year and have been using the nest app and loved it. I bought a new nest camera and it could only be installed in the google home app. The problem is that while my old nest cameras can be seen (live vide) in the google home app, it is missing the slide-bar which lets one scroll backwards and forwards to see the history. I see this function available on the new nest camera but not the old ones in the google home app. I can still use the nest app which works great but I don't see the new camera there. Is there a way to enable the slide bar to see the history for old (1 yr) old nest cameras in the google home app?
Hi Grvs, Sadly the answer is no. Google has said they have no intention of making the new cams work with the older NEST app. Despite the fact that the new cams are called "NEST"! They only thing they have said is look for enhancements in 2022 to the Google Home app. I was stunned to find this out as well when I bought the new cams a few months ago. One other big surprised is that there is no way to view the new cameras on your computer.
I ended up returning them and purchased some used previous gen cams on Ebay.
