What you need to know

  • Google is introducing an update to Chromecast with Google TV, allowing it to display video feed from its latest Nest cameras.
  • Users can use the voice remote or other Assistant-enabled speakers to bring up the feed.
  • The feature is arriving this week and supports the battery and wired Nest Cam, floodlight, and Nest Doorbell (battery).

Chromecast with Google TV is a great streaming device, particularly because of its Google Assistant features. However, the ability to view video feeds from Google’s latest smart home cameras like the indoor/outdoor Nest Cams is a feature that’s been surprisingly omitted, at least until now.

Google announced in a Nest community blog post that this week, Chromecast with Google TV owners would finally be able to view their live video feed from these newer Nest Cam and Nest Doorbell. This aims to make it easier for users to see who’s at the door without having to look away from the TV or having to rely on one of the best smart displays.
