Straight out of the box, your Google Nest camera or doorbell can stream live video for free in the Home app or Nest app.
If it’s your first camera, you can also get a free trial Nest Aware subscription for a limited time. To view video saved in the cloud after the trial period has ended, purchase a Nest Aware subscription.
If you want to go back and review past activity that your camera or doorbell has detected, you can do so in the app. Some cameras offer up to three hours of event video history for free, while others offer up to three hours of still image snapshots instead.
Depending on which Nest Aware subscription you choose and the camera or doorbell model that you have, your camera can save clips of important activity or continuous video whenever your camera is on.
