Hello all,

Not sure if anyone else has the same problem but I am unable to use the Nest service with my Google Home. It appears that if you migrate your Nest account to a Google account you are unable to attach your nest service to a Google home so you can view your camera on the Google nest hub for example. The option to sign in with Google to attach your Nest account is completely missing when using the link in the google home app (see attached image).

Hi Jamie,
Thanks for reaching out. Let's try to get into the bottom of this. A few questions:
  1. Are you the Nest account owner?
  2. Are you able to login directly to the Nest Application?
  3. Were you able to finish migrating your account?
  4. Is this happening to both the app and the browser?
After migration, your homes and devices list may not be up to date in the Home or Nest apps. If this is the case, force close both the Home and Nest apps:
  1. Depending on your phone model, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, double tap your home button, or tap the square button on the bottom right of the screen.
  2. Swipe left or right to find and select the app you want to close.  
  3. Swipe up on the app window to close the app.
  4. Open the app.
You can tell that you’ve migrated in the Nest app when you go to Settings Nest settings icon. If there is no Migrate to a Google Account option, you are now using a Google Account.
Note : If you are not the account Owner, you need to let the Owner migrate the account first. Once the account is migrated, they can invite you as a family member on the Google Home app so you can see the devices on your Google Home App.
Hope this helps.

I began using the nest app after the migration and logged into the nest app with my google account. However when I attempt to login to nest through the Google Home app, it tells me that my account must have been migrated and I need to login with google. Not sure what to do.

After the migration, I have lost all the (7) NEST products from both home locations on all my iPhone, iPad and Android phone.

Im having the same problem.  Bought a nest protect and followed the setup via the nest app. So with a google account without migrating.

Want to link my nest to hue, tried the website,  same error as above. Tried the google home app, same error as above.

The nest app is working fine with my Google account.

After migration I'm having all these same issues, and according to Google searches, so are many other people. I guess migrating was a bad idea since I lost Google Home control of my thermostat now.

And now I'm seeing "Ring" isn't even in the list to add like it used to be.

i too have the same problem.  Just set up a brand new Nest Hello (only product) with my google account.  i have the Nest app working perfectly fine on 3 different devices.  But when i go to add nest to the Home app, i get an error suggesting my email or password is incorrect.

Another thing i noticed is that i cant log in through the Chrome browser but can do it perfectly through Firefox
