Nest Thermostats - What is the Current Status

I know that Google has made some changes to the way Nest Thermostats are controlled and I personally cannot get Indigo to connect to it. What is the current status? Is there a way to add Nest as a device or is it currently not available?

Thanks

[MODERATOR NOTE] moved to the correct forum.

I don't use Nest thermostats so I haven't really been following, hopefully others will chime in.

I took another shot at it using the Next Home plugin and after getting a new API key setup, it actually works. So if you have a Nest thermostat, it does work with Indigo still, at least as of June, 2019.

Still working fine for me as well. Haven’t changed a thing in years.

Re: Nest Thermostats - What is the Current Status

I'm a long-time user of Nest Home Plugin for Indigo.

Google had originally announced a complete shutdown of "Works with Nest" at the end of August 2019. They since backed off and said that they will not actually kill or shutdown Works with Next, but that they would still "stop accepting new connections", which I assume means that they won't be issuing any new authorization keys. So I believe that new users will no longer be able to start using the Nest Home Plugin for Indigo at this time.

Later contributions in this thread seem to shift to the topic of whether Nest is "still working" with Indigo. My take is that Nest thermostats can no longer truly be considered working and "supported" in Indigo. In addition to changes announced in the last few months by Nest/Google, there are several other issues with the plugin documented here.

I just migrated my Nest account to Google. The Nest Device States show Green Circles, but I am no longer receiving updates to my Nest Devices via the Nest Home plugin. The last update was posted at the time I completed the migration.

I just read an announcement from IFTTT that said google are not going to turn off the old NEST API. the aren't accepting any new registrations and it is of course unsupported.
