Nest's Indoor Cam IQ Gets Native Google Assistant Support

Nest Cam IQ Google Assistant update makes camera a smart speaker You Can Now Talk to Your Nest Security Camera

Even if Google's assistant does not eavesdrop, its presence on an indoor security camera is likely to focus more attention on the handling and protection of the data collected through internet-connected devices. It's far and away the "smartest" home security camera you can buy today. There's one place you haven't seen the Assistant, though: a camera.

Google's assistant can already be used to control Nest's cameras and internet-connected thermostat through its internet-connected speaker, Home, and smartphones running on its Android software.

To launch the Google Assistant on your Nest Cam IQ indoor, just say "OK Google" followed by your query or command.

The assistant is only supposed to be activated with keywords such as "OK, Google", although there have been instances when the Home speaker has been caught listening when it was supposed to be turned off.

Lloyds hands £1bn to shareholders after 'landmark year'
Lloyds Bank said it will invest in new technology to make banking simple and easier for customers, as well as reduce costs. Barclays reaffirmed an "overweight" rating on shares of Lloyds Banking Group in a report on Thursday, October 26th.

The new update - available to download today - embeds the Google Assistant in the Nest Cam IQ indoor and effectively turns it into a rough Google Home equivalent, albeit with some features missing.

The light-ring around the Nest Cam IQ - now only really used during the setup process - will illuminate when the camera is listening. Keep in mind Alphabet recently announced it will fold Nest into its Google hardware team, instead of operating it separately. A odd exclusion given most people would love to cast their Nest Cam to their TV - perhaps in the next update. A $10 plan offers 10 days of nonstop surveillance; get 30 days for $30.

The company is also adding a $5 plan to its Nest Aware subscription service offering five days of 24/7 recording. The camera can now differentiate between a person and a thing in motion zones and has improved facial recognition.
