google hub to stream the nest driveway

Over the past two months, when we ask the google hub, "hey google, stream the driveway" (camera) the hub will show the driveway for 1-3 seconds, then offer up either driveway companies, or doctors.  Is anyone having this problem?  Hoping this isn't a pay for ad campaign.  It's terribly annoying and not what we signed up for.  Thanks for any help?

We've found that the name or label we give our cameras and doorbells makes a difference. For example, if we called one of our cameras "Back Yard" (two words), the Google Nest Hub would instead show miscellaneous search results for places near us with "backyard" in their name (playgrounds, wedding sites, etc.) but if we renamed the camera to "Backyard" (one word), only then would Google stream the camera correctly  in response to "Hey Google, stream the backyard".  But "Front Yard" (two words) works just fine.
