    Seriously how is this not a feature already in 2022! Nanit get your act together. Alexa support was the only reason we went with Nanit but it's been so unreliable over the past 5 months to the point of being unusable. Nanit support just says it's a known Alexa issue and they can't fix it. If that's the case remove Alexa support from your feature list!

    TLDR...Get into the 21st century and add Google Hub support!!

    Pileing on here - please create a Google Home integration.

  • I also just got a google home with hopes of using it as a baby monitor. I have all my Lorex, Nest, and Wyze cameras on here and this is the only one that isn’t linked to my monitor. I did read that y’all were working on it back in 2021 but I hoped y’all would have it figured out by now.

    This feature was promised as “on the roadmap” for 2022 and it seems as if we may have backtracked.

    There have been no updates and this is lazy from a product and IT process. I work at a large SaaS company who is constantly having to prioritize feature/functionality, but transparency with your customers is crucial.

    Please take this seriously and give an update asap as this is a huge request.

    I would also really like to have Nanit be able to stream to a google home / chrome cast. Even audio-only support would be great.

    Nanit's latest feature release on 7/14 was Split Screen, which is the ability to stream multiple cameras simultaneously. In the email communication, Nanit stated that this was the "#1 most requested feature." It would be surprising that a feature that only applies to a small percentage of users (i.e. those with multiple active Nanit cameras) would be the "#1 Request." Meanwhile, we have a community thread with 15 pages of people who stumbled upon this thread and commented to request Google Home/Chromecast compatibility, where nearly all Nanit users can likely take advantage, as there are millions of these Google devices in homes. I wonder how they determined that Split Screen was the #1 Request? (Survey? Posts on the community forum? Complaints to Support? Public tweets?)

    I suspect that they are going to leverage the new Matter interface that is coming. The timing seems to line up:

  • please dont act like you're listening to your customer's feedback when this glaring feature request has been ignored for more than a year.

    Just fair warning for everyone: don't get your hopes up. According to this post, this has been "on the roadmap" since December 2019. If you haven't bought a Nanit yet and want Google Home integration, go with something else.
