Google Discontinues Nest Secure without Explanation

On April 8, 2024, Google will discontinue support for Nest Secure, the only home security system the company has produced. This will result in the system becoming fully inoperable.

Google has not provided any reason for the shutdown. The company's announcement simply states that services will end on the specified date.

Nest Secure is widely regarded as one of Google's best smart home products. It is easy to install and use, integrates well with other Nest products, and offers self-monitoring features.

Currently, there is no suitable replacement for Nest Secure. Google has invested heavily in a partnership with ADT, but this has not benefited customers who are losing functionality and facing indifference from the company.

Another potential reason for the shutdown could be Google's move away from the Nest app. However, older products like Nest Cam Indoor and Outdoor have been successfully migrated to the Home app, raising questions about why Nest Secure is not receiving the same treatment.

Google's practice of discontinuing products has become common, but the sudden and unexplained shutdown of Nest Secure has raised concerns about the company's commitment to its smart home products. Customers are right to be angry, and Google needs to address their concerns and prevent a similar situation from happening in the future.
