Google promises a brand-new web client for its latest Nest Cams

Google released a whole slew of Nest products in August, including brand-new Nest Cams. They're the first to finally leave the awkward dichotomy of the Nest and Google Home app, which is one factor (of many) we like about them.

Nest's server problems will matter less with its latest cameras

In today's announcement of the new generation of Nest cameras, the company highlighted all of the improvements that make these cams more powerful than ever, to a point where you could use them without a paid subscription.

We're one step closer to getting our hands on these new products, as the company mistakenly published them on its online store for a short while.

Nest Hello owners now have one less reason to open the actual Nest app

Controlling all of your various smart home gadgets can be tricky, but thankfully, Google's Home app acts as a single hub perfect for security cameras, robot vacuums, and RGB light bulbs.

With a new update to Home, Nest Hello users can access even more controls without relying on any other app.
