Few weeks earlier, reports confirmed that Google will merge Nest with their Hardware team to bring more features to the platform. The Nest Cam IQ has recently got an update which will bring some major features to the camera.
The latest update brings Google Assistant to the camera which means that you can use the voice assistant with the camera. Similar to other devices, you will need to say “OK Google” to activate the assistant and from there on, you will be able to use the assistant to accomplish traditional tasks.
Nest also gave instruction on how to use the latest addition to the camera. It wrote, “To launch the Google Assistant on your Nest Cam IQ indoor, just say ‘OK Google’ followed by your query or command. So you can raise the temperature on your Nest thermostat by saying ‘Hey Google, make it warmer.’ Or ask your Assistant to create calendar appointments and reminders.”
If you currently own Nest Cam IQ, then you should receive the update for free. In order to install the update, you will need to download the update via OTA and you will be able to use Google Assistant without any issue. However, note that the latest feature is available only in the United States.
