A helpful home is a private home. Protecting your privacy starts with one of the world’s most advanced security infrastructures, which we build directly into all Google products so that they’re secure by default. The built-in security in your Google Account automatically detects and blocks threats before they ever reach you, so that your personal information is always secure. We build privacy tools that keep you in control. Control your Google Assistant activity, privacy settings, information, and personal preferences. See your activity, delete it manually, or choose to delete it automatically. Control your privacy on Google Assistant with your voice. Ask questions like “Where can I change my privacy settings?” to get answers to the most common privacy and security questions. Visit the Google Nest Safety Center at safety.google/nest to learn more about how we protect your information and respect your privacy. * Some products and features may not be available in all regions.

Account doesn’t show up. The app steals my email address from somewhere but won’t let me login with our home account. Broken
Bring back the best app. This app refuses to work. Tired of having to restart my wifi when it’s the coding on the app causing an issue. Please provide a connectivity fix!
Unlike Nest App, the Google Home App heats my phone when I open my Cameras and starts draining my battery. When using Nest App this doesn't happen. New Nest cameras only work with Google Home. Either Google fixes the Google Home app or they allow new cameras to work with Nest app. Great product downgraded by this issue. Hope Google fixes this soon or probably returning my Cameras.
Bought two series 3 Chromecasts and tried to hook up to my WiFi on Spectrum and after initial setup neither Chrimecast device appears as being connected. We’ve tried both bands, rebooting Router different phones and different TV’s and still can’t set the devices up
Integration with existing and new Nest products is horrible. Nest app never had these issues. I ordered a new Nest battery doorbell and it took 3 hours plus another hour with Nest support to get it to connect to the home app. I had to delete my account and start all over again just to get the doorbell to work. Now my Nest battery camera won’t connect. I have tried everything I did before to get the doorbell to work. So frustrating! Both the app and camera are google products- how can you make it this hard for them to connect to this app that you are required to use!
The Nest app worked great. The Google Home app crashes constantly. Also any new “Nest aka Google cameras” will only work with the Google Home app not the original Nest app
It doesn’t work anymore after trying to connect for over 2 hours nothing
Google assistant is useless to me if I have to use “Google” in the wake phrase. Baffling to me why they don’t allow you to customize it. Amazon Alexa let’s me use any word, name, or phrase I want to call her. So Amazon it is, exclusively, for that simple reason. That’s a lot of lost hardware sales and licensing revenue, product visibility, and daily interactions lost. For lack of one setting option.
Nothing works unless I try it several times. The cutesy interface is so unintuitive that I am utterly frustrated and can't find anything. Setup is terrifically difficult, and then my Google Wifi units keep falling offline. I gave up and switched to another router.
