Google Nest cameras and doorbells are now compatible with Alexa

The Mountain View firm has rolled out an Alexa skill update for some Google Nest devices.

The new skill enables the latest Google Nest Cam (wired and battery-powered models), Nest Cam with projector and Nest Doorbell to interact with Amazon Echo Show devices, Echo speakers, Fire TVs and Fire tablets. It will therefore be possible to broadcast motion alert notifications, communicate using two-way audio, or even display live video streams (on Echo Show, Fire TV and Fire tablets).

To take advantage of these new features, just set up Google Nest devices from the Google Home app, and go to the Alexa appchoose the tab More at the bottom right of the interface, then Skills and gamesbefore searching for the Google Nest skill and activating it (the app will ask you to identify yourself, then start a search for new compatible devices on your network).
