ELI5: using Google Assistant on my phone to view Nest Outdoor camera feed 0 Recommended Answers 1 Reply 1 Upvote

I'm not the smartest guy, but I'd like to think I place in the top 50% of the populace. That said, I can't seem to figure out how to view any of our Nest Outdoor camera feeds on my phone through Google Assistant.

Ideally, would like to say, "Hey Google, show me the driveway camera" and view the live feed. The reply I get is that it doesn't know what screen device to display.  We do not have any display devices/Chromecast/etc. setup, so I guess I was expecting it to display on my phone.

Cameras and ability to view within the app work great otherwise. Works fine on Alexa, too, just trying to drive everything towards one resource where possible. Attempting on an Android device (version 9).

Any direction would be appreciated.

Hi Donald,
 
The best way to show the cameras on the phone would be to say, "Okay Google, open the Nest app".  
If you had a Chromecast on the TV or a smart display you could show the feed there but for the Android screen I would just have the Google Assistant open the app.
 
See if that works for you and let us know.
Thanks!
Jill
