In the coming days, Google's modular Nest Secure alarm system will gain a new ability. The microphone inside the Nest Guard keypad, which was previously used only for the Assistant functionality, will start pulling double-duty to detect for the sound of glass being broken on windows and doors.

Assistant setup on Nest is broken for some, but Google is working on a fix

Assistant setup on Nest is broken for some, but Google is working on a fix

Google purchased Nest a long time ago in 2014. For quite a while, the company remained relatively autonomous and independent under the Alphabet umbrella, but recently, Google has folded Nest and its product right into its hardware division. Most notably, the Home Hub is now called Nest Hub, and Nest devices are losing their ability to connect to IFTTT, all in the name of security. However, with Nest accounts being migrated to Google accounts at the moment, users are experiencing inconveniences – some people report they haven't been able to connect their Secure and Nest IQ cams with the Assistant for weeks.

[Update: Setup video, opt-in confirmed] Your Nest Secure becomes an Assistant-integrated smart speaker starting today

Last spring, the Nest Secure finally picked up Assistant-based controls, letting you do things like arm/disarm, and check the status of your home security setup from your phone or Google Home.
