Video Scrolling

Can I use a 2nd gen nest camera with the Google home app and get the same video scrolling that I get in the nest app with a 1st gen camera?

The new Google Nest cameras released starting in the fall of 2021 use only the Google Home app, where, in my opinion (and in the opinion of others that have posted here), scrolling through video history is terrible compared to the Google Nest app and on the home.nest.com website.

Hey folks,

 

Thank you for your feedback on this issue, I fully understand the frustrations of not having your new Nest Cams in the Nest App or available on https://bit.ly/3HtBgJC web app. I can imagine having to use two different apps at the moment is quite daunting, and could lead to frustration. 

 

However, the new Nest cameras and doorbell are exclusive to the Home app because we wanted to create an integrated experience with your speakers and displays. A Nest Aware subscription applies to all of your cameras, speakers, and displays in the same home structure. Thank you for your continued patience, and support. I am more than happy to assist you further with this inquiry if you wish. Please let me know.

 

Best Regards,

Brad.
