Smart home gadgets are incredibly useful, but they can also be a nightmare to fix when and if things don't work as expected. While I'm sure Google would prefer if all its Nest hardware simply worked right all the time, that's not something you can always depend on. To help with the troubleshooting process, Google is rolling out a pair of new tools for its Nest Thermostat and Nest Cameras that promise to help make the usually frustrating process a little bit easier.
If you have a Nest camera and are trying to livestream its feed or video events while on a mobile data connection, odds are you're squinting at your screen and wondering why the heck everything looks so pixelated. The issue was introduced with version 5.59 of the Nest app and didn't seem to be related to any specific camera, phone, or mobile operator. The problem is now fixed with v5.60 of the Nest app, so you can finally update and get rid of it.

We're fast approaching Black Friday, every major retailer's favorite day of the year. There are sure to be savings of all sorts popping up on the big day, but we've got the list of deals you can get on Google products starting today right here — and there are some deals you can't afford to miss.
It's almost Halloween again, and you know what that means: the option for spooky seasonal sounds from your Nest Hello doorbell. There's no better way to get in the spirit than some scary noises yourself every time someone's at your front door.
Nest products offer best-in-class integration with Google services like the Assistant, and the Nest Hello video doorbell is no different. When we reviewed it back in 2018, we awarded it our Most Wanted seal of approval. Now you can get a brand-new unit for just $144.99 on Newegg — but you'll have to act fast to get this deal.
Google is carrying on with its month of Nest product sales, and while there (sadly) haven't been any discounts on single items, we have seen some decent bundles so far. Today, Google is selling the Nest Hello Video Doorbell and Nest Hub together for $268.99, a discount of $50 compared to buying them separately.
If you weren't around for that last wallop of discounts back in April, you'll be glad to know that Google has put a whole bunch of Nest products on sale. If you need a video doorbell, smart lock, or security camera, you've got through July 8 to save on them.
