I am unable to get my Nest Protect to show as a device on my Google Home app. I do have my Nest and Google Home accounts linked. My Nest cam does appear in GH as a device, but for some reason the Nest protect does not.

This is unacceptable. We should have been warned prior to migration that it will not support nest protect. The real issue is that now I can only add additional members via the Google home app. I can still use Nest application,however, the other membres cannot as they are forced to use Google home application. So they have no visibility to the nest protect!

How do I reverse this. This notion of being unréversible is unacceptable. What's the point of nest protect if it's not visible by users?  Do I need now to factory reset each of my devices and start over again with a new nest account?

same here - I bought 3 Nest Protect as a bundle along with a new Google Home Mini - I already have several devices in my Google Home app like washmaschine and thermostat for my radiators. While I installed the Nest app I of course chose to login with my google account as I thought this will integrate the Nest directly to GH. When finished the installation it didnt show up so I tried to add a new installed device in GH and chose Nest from the list. The GH app then redirect me to the Nest login page but when I try to login with my google account Nest says that either the password is wrong (it is not) or my account is linked to google (of course it is) and that I have to login with google. Well, there is no special button for google login and it doesnt accept the google login information.

The reason why I bought both Nest Protect and Google Home Mini together (it was offered as a bundle by the reseller btw) was that Google should give a warning via GHM when there is an alert.

Please clarify how the link between GH and Nest Protect can be done otherwise I don't see why Nest advertises the Google integration on their website. The reason for me to use Google products and GH compatible stuff is that I dont want several apps on my phone for each Smarthome device.
