Google Home received an overhaul last year that reduced its number of bottom tabs from four to two — only home control and a feed remain. The latter hasn't been populated by too much content, but a recent update to version 2.19 changes that, at least if you own Nest security devices. The feed now shows you Nest Cam events in the form of highlights and makes the whole history available for viewing. The update also gives smart outlets icons that better depict which devices they're controlling.
If you're having trouble connecting to your Nest Cam's live feed, adjust your Nest Thermostat, or set up a new Nest product right now, you aren't alone. The service is suffering (another) partial outage as we speak. Although cameras appear to be coming back, thermostats are still out.
If your pop's idea of Father's Day involves home improvement, this ongoing promotion for Google Nest hardware might be of interest. Right now Google has a ton of its smart home hardware on sale for the upcoming holiday, notably including a rare discount on the Google Nest Cam IQ Outdoor, which can be had for $50 off ($300) for one, and $80 off ($518) if you get the two-pack.
