How do I get a document in Google Drive to display on my Google Nest device?

Hi Janice46,

This is not currently a feature that is available, sorry. You can screen cast/mirror an Android mobile device to the Hub display.

Cathal

Are there directions for screen casting a document from Drive?

It seems odd that Google created a display device that isn't compatible with Google Drive.  Is that an upcoming upgrade?

 

Thanks

Hi again,

From the Google Home app home screen long press on your Hub device icon and on the next screen you will see the 'Cast my screen' option.

Hi Jake and Cathal,

I understand that a screencast is a "video" of the screen display on your device.  If Nest cannot access my Drive documents, what am I screen casting?

I did submit a comment to Google but have not received a response.

Thanks, Janice

If Google Nest cannot display Google Drive documents, how can I get the documents to display on Nest?

Hi Janice46,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

It's truly clever and helpful if documents can be viewed on our Nest displays, however, this feature is not available on any Google Nest displays. We always target a better experience for our users and we’d like to take this opportunity to improve our products to meet our user’s expectations. In line of this, we want to encourage you to send feedback from your end and we’re hoping for all the possibilities by taking our user’s feedback and suggestions. 

 

Best,
