Google's Nest reveals upgrades, new camera for smart home

Tech Industry
Google has new eyes for your home. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your cnet update [MUSIC] Google is making a bigger push to become the leader of smarthome gadgetry through nest, a company it purchased last year that makes smarthome thermostat's, smoke detectors And it also owns the Dropcam Home Monitoring Cameras. Well, Nest just announced a few upgrades to its product line. It's ditching the Dropcam brand for a new name. It's now the Nestcam, and it's upgraded with 1080p resolution, so you can monitor your pets in HiDef clarity. This indoor camera costs $200, and it brings night vision and motion and sound alert monitoring. If you want to archive your video footage, that's gonna be an extra service you have to buy called Nest Aware. It starts at $10 a month. An upgraded Nest Protect smoke detector is coming out next month for $100. If it detects smoke it can tell your Nest thermostat to turn off and then send your phone an alert. Also getting an upgrade is Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite e-reader. It does all the same things as before, but now it has a better high resolution display. It's actually the same screen as the more expensive top of the line model Kindle Voyage. The Voyage is $200 and this new Paperwhite is $120. And it's available for pre-order now, shipping on June 30th. There are some changes going on in the social media world. This week Facebook came out with a new app, it's called Moments and it's on a mission to make it easier to share photos among friends. Often we never get around to sending photos to our friends because uploading can be a hassle. But Facebook's app can scan all of the photos you took on your phone, lump together based on faces and the time they were taken, and then you can give select friends access to the groups of photos they are in. And Facebook recommends who to share a photo with By using facial-recognition technology. This is the same system that is used to suggest who to tag in a photo, and you can turn off in settings. It's a big unnerving Facebook access to your entire camera rule. But it's not posted online unless you tell it to post it. On Twitter, you're gonna now notice videos will now begin to auto play, just like Facebook does. Not only is it annoying, but it's a huge data drain on your phone, so be sure to go into settings and either turn it off, or change it so only auto play is when you're on wi-fi. And YouTube is hoping to draw in more of the gaming community with a new hub just for watching other people's video gaming streams. It's called YouTube Gaming, and it's Google's way of competing with Twitch, a popular video game live streaming site owned by Amazon. Now this hub is going to pull in all of YouTube's gaming videos and it'll go live in a In a few weeks. That's it for this tech news update. There's always more at ww.cnet.com.
