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. The new Nest camers are only available in the Google Home App. Sorry for the inconvenience! Please let me know if you need further assistance.

> The new Nest camers are only available in the Google Home App
Any plans to make it start appearing in the nest app? Any ETA? Didn't expect such a close ended response from specialist. As customers, we all look for consolidation of products across the board in single place/app, and nest app is one such automatic choice for nest products.

Brad, do you think you can ask the development team to make each type of device into its own app, that way you can really annoy all its nest customers?
11-02-2021 08:13 AM
I bought these for an integrated solution and they don’t even work with your own app how dumb is that now I have to wait for an update better idea I’ll take it back
11-05-2021 10:49 AM
Hey brand - in this case how do I setup the home and away routines as advertised (off when home to save battery)
11-06-2021 08:16 PM
We’re all waiting for a response, Brad. Your first one didn’t suit your customer satisfaction goals.
11-09-2021 08:13 AM
Such BS! Can't really call it a Nest Cam now can we?
11-30-2021 11:58 AM
This does not allow for the use alexa to view the camera's so does not fill my needs, why was this not disclosed. I will need to return
12-03-2021 07:59 AM
I bought the new Google Nest Cam Outdoor/Indoor Battery model that was recently released. I added it via the instructions to my Google Home App. I can NOT connect it to Google Home. The Camera says it need Nest App to connect. Then in The Nest App transfersit back to Google Home. So it is vicious circle . Please HELP. I have 3 new cameras one with flood light and NONE can be installed into Google Home. Help.
12-14-2021 10:32 AM
I need a better answer. This was not disclosed during purchase. Please advise how I can return the camera.
12-20-2021 09:00 PM
This is garbage. I want a refund.
12-28-2021 02:22 PM
This is a terrible move. I purchased the battery camera to add to my system. Now I can’t even use them with time lapse or on the computer screen at all. This is something that he to be fixed. I have been recommending these cameras to everyone and bow I will be steering my customers to a different product all together. This needs to be returned to nest. They knew how to do this right.

That is not really an answer. What has happen is Google has ruined the benefits of Nest system . In my view I waisted $300 because I now have 2 systems instead of one. Why don't you move Nest thermostats to another platform so I can have 3 platforms. What is the purpose of Google Home to not work on a computer and mobile app

Just wanted to jump in here to check to make sure that you saw our response. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns as I will be locking this in 24 hours.
Have a great day.
11-02-2021 08:17 AM
do you have an ETA for when it might show up in your own app
11-02-2021 08:22 AM
Plus the real bigger issue here is I’m paying for nest aware and can’t use it with these cameras
11-11-2021 03:01 PM
what response it send you to and advertisement if you click on brads links.
11-11-2021 03:03 PM
Hey loser its November how about a reponse
09-26-2021 04:18 PM
Short answer, it doesn't. Not the answer we were looking for.
10-14-2021 11:11 AM
I just installed Nest Cam Battery, and cannot view it in my Nest Apps. Apparently according to this community... it will never appear in Nest apps. Really unexpected.
11-02-2021 08:19 AM
When do you plan on correctness deficiency I can’t believe that you guys put out a product that has the name Nest on it and it doesn’t work with your own app
11-06-2021 03:11 AM
Absolutely ridiculous these cameras should work in the nest app for convenience reasons now I have to use the stupid google home app that takes longer to use. Wake up guys and listen to your customers
11-09-2021 06:46 PM
What the F?
Im returning my Battery Camera on the Spot! That's Fraud!
11-11-2021 03:05 PM
Hey John F anybody home???? read Below your as quick as your software developers ????
11-23-2021 11:58 AM
A bad joke! Pack it up, send it back and get Ring - all in one app!
11-23-2021 04:37 PM
I JUST bought the new cam to use with my nest aware account. I had no idea it wouldn't work. What is the point of it being a "Nest Cam" if you can't view together with all your cameras. Please rectify or make the Home app have the functionality that we need.
11-24-2021 09:12 AM
No where does it tell you that the camera won't work with the Nest App??? Could someone respond to all the outstanding questions in the forum above please. Brad , Garrett?? Have a Great Day.
11-24-2021 06:25 PM
I think it’s because they’ll need a bigger update on the app. The battery cam probably isn’t on live view all the time to save battery. They’ll need to update the app to allow this cam to only go live by request. If NEST team is reading this, I just bought a solar panel that’s compatible with your nest cam, will that work to keep it running even if it’s on live view? Maybe you guys should’ve come out with one.
11-24-2021 08:55 PM
There lies the problem Google doesn’t even read these comments otherwise they would reply they are bloody hopeless same as their camera app
12-07-2021 05:12 PM
Why on earth would a Nest Cam not be compatible with a nest app? Reminds me of a bad movie I once watched - Idiocracy! My assumption then is that this camera I just installed will not work with a nest aware / plus subscription?
12-07-2021 06:18 PM
Yes they took our money for the cameras and Subscriptions. Worst is that they don’t reply to us
12-07-2021 06:20 PM
Guess I'll return it. Should have gone with my gut and overpaid for an ADT subscription...
01-03-2022 06:41 PM
I have noticed that there are no replays. I guess google is so big they no longer care about customer care. I have really enjoyed these cameras but when a company does this to paying customers it is really sad. I am not happy with this new camera (its settings) and will no longer be buying any more google products unless they stop being so ignorant and start helping their customers. Maybe we should call them Microsoft..........Sorry cant do that. I have had Microsoft contact me and fix a problem.
12-08-2021 02:00 AM
I returned the Google Nest battery outdoor cam, got my refund and bought the original Nest NC4100GB IQ Outdoor Camera (wired) on Ebay, works just fine on the Nest App and I feel has better night vision. And most of all I stream remotely when not at home, the main reason I got them in the first place. You will find these older second hand cameras are more expensive then the newer Google version. The Google version you will find many being sold on Ebay cheaper than the original as people are getting rid of them, that says it all in my opinion.
12-08-2021 06:53 AM
Hey Google! Does it only work in voice? It appears so. You guys, I've spent all day tryna integrate that battery cam to nest, thinking I had crossed over 2 different homes deleted my home inside the home app which had over 10 devices. Going though and adding them back was very annoying. Just to not have it show up in spaces WHICH YOU MADE THE FEATURE OF SPACES TO SHOW MULTIPLE DEVICES!! Tryna sort through it on the search, realizing after reading this forum that Google had made this Cam trash. For one starters the Home app is not made for security cameras. I'm really confused on how this product was ever released without a functional app? And you locked it to one provider so no third party so dumb.
12-08-2021 10:32 AM
GOOOOOGLE can you respond to why you are selling a Nest cam that doesn't work with the Nest app!!!!
You can give me a full refund and I won't buy anymore of your products!!!
12-09-2021 04:50 PM
Holy **bleep**....what a fail ...I cannot believe this could be the case but here we are.
12-20-2021 09:03 PM
Wow this is garbage. Fix this google.
12-20-2021 10:51 PM
They have made a decision and they won’t admit it they have made a bad mistake it’s quite obvious that they don’t care and they won’t fix this problem and guess what you cannot return the items when I called they told me to take it back to where I got it from JB hi-fi don’t wanna bar of it so I cannot return my product I am stuck with it $1000 worth of rubbish. Or we can do now is warn other people not to buy nest there are so many other cameras out there that work of one app and not the stupid Google app well done Google you’ve sucked us all in and taken our money
