Google Assistant is now built into the Nest Cam IQ indoor camera

Google Assistant is now built into the Nest Cam IQ indoor camera

The blue glow means it's recording.

With the Google Assistant built into Nest Cam IQ, owners will be able to ask the standard queries they would on any other device that has Google Assistant support. The device is now basically a mini Google Home with a camera on top.

The Cam IQ will get the Google Assistant via an update to the Nest app, and while it's now the only product in Nest's lineup to support this feature, it's expected to expand to more Nest hardware as time goes on.

With the update, you'll be able to speak the usual "OK Google" commands, and the blue ring around the Nest Cam IQ will light up to show it's listening.

Alphabet owns Nest and earlier this month integrated the previously standalone unit into Google's hardware group.

However, a patent application filed by Google in 2016 floated the possibility of using the video recorded by security cameras to deliver ads based on the kinds of furnishings and other merchandise already in people's homes.

Privacy watchdogs are particularly anxious that Google may eventually use some of the information collected from devices inside homes to get a better understanding of a person's specific interests so it can sell ads for products that the targeted individual might like. And today, we're announcing three new integrations between Google and Nest products that will be available soon to help make keeping your family safe and secure easier than ever before.

Along with the software update, Nest is adding a new $5 / 5-day subscription plan to its Nest Aware video upload service. Now we're adding a 5-day plan for $5 a month, in addition to our existing 10-day/$10 and 30-day/$30 plans. There's face recognition across cameras, so a shot of someone outside the house can be matched with a shot of someone inside the house, and person alerts inside activity zones, so you can be alerted if a person (as opposed to any motion) enters a specific area.
