Google Assistant makes it easy to control and interact with many of your Nest products.
Nest Thermostat, Nest Cam and Nest Cam IQ, Nest Hello, and Nest Secure work seamlessly with Google Assistant. Now it's easy to control your home's temperature and cast your Nest Cam video with your voice. Google Assistant can also announce who is at your door when Nest Hello sees someone, and lets you arm your Nest Secure alarm system on your way out with your voice. Also, Nest Cam IQ Indoor now has Google Assistant built in, so you can ask questions and control your devices directly from Nest Cam IQ camera's (US only).

- Raise or lower the temperature in your home and switch between heating and cooling modes with simple voice commands, all without lifting a finger.

In order for Google Assistant to connect to Nest, you must use the Owner Account, i.e. the account that was created to first set up your Nest home. If someone else invited you to create a Nest account to access and control the Nest products in your home, you cannot link.
