View History on Web

Is there a reason I can't view history from my Nest cameras on my I-Mac? Only my Ipad? Why is the web based Google Home void of history? I can't find any good answer to this.

History for our older cameras (those that work in the Google Nest app) can be viewed on the home.nest.com website.

On Sept. 29, 2021, Google Nest VP Rishi Chandra posted this: "...we’ve also been working on rolling out a desktop experience for the Google Home app, so the new Nest cameras and doorbell feeds can be viewed and controlled from there. This will launch in 2022." (https://www.googlenestcommunity.com/t5/Blog/Message-from-our-GM-Updates-for-our-Nest-customers/ba-p/...)

We bought a Google Nest Camera (Battery) that same month, and are still waiting for this functionality to be added to the home.google.com website. which is still in "Preview" mode.

Google has a 'preview' version of the web viewing from your iMac that you can use.  Give this a try: https://home.google.com/

The only limitation is you can not view recorded clips.  It is live-only viewing.

Well yes...but history was my question...

Well there you go...a little crazy if you ask me. I still have to ask why on earth not. Should be simple. If nest had it why not google?
