Chromecast with Google TV: Video from your Nest Cam comes live to the TV
Stream live feeds from Nest Cams and Nest Doorbells to your TV screen using Chromecast with Google TV. It works with these camera models.
- The Chromecast with Google TV streams live feeds from Nest Cams and Nest Doorbells.
- The video recordings of your surveillance camera or video doorbell come live on the TV.
- According to Google, all common models for indoor and outdoor use will soon be compatible.
You can also keep an eye on the live feeds of your Google Nest Cams and Nest Doorbells via the TV screen: The Chromecast with Google TV will support the display of surveillance videos as a real-time stream in the future.
According to a Google Nest Community post, all Nest cams and doorbells will be compatible, including 2021’s battery-powered indoor and outdoor cams, their wired indoor sister model, the Nest Cam with floodlight, and the battery-powered Nest Doorbell.
The activation of the live stream on your TV via the Chromecast with Google TV should work simply by voice command via the Chromecast Voice Remote. The function should also be activated via the Google Assistant from other devices. However, Google does not reveal exactly when it will actually work with all devices: “Soon” is the monosyllable on the community website.
By the way, if you operate a Google Nest Hub Max, you can now give it voice commands without having to wake it up with “Hey Google” – because the Smart Hub now simply reads your face. Read here how this should work.
