Google is killing the Nest cloud API
So Googles says they are going to shut down the Nest cloud API on Aug 31st. Everyone has to migrate over to their Google Assistant system. I have no idea what that really entails. From a quick read it's hard to tell if that means basically just voice control or if there's an equivalent to the Nest API available there.

Poking around, it looks like maybe no more API access. If that's so, I'd be selling that Nest gear while you can and move to something all local. Yet another reason never to use cloud based gear.

I stumbled on this in the OpenHAB forums.

Might be interesting if it gets funded (and it’s a modest fund they seek) and becomes a reality.

On the Nest, I wonder if the older local API, as used by the v1 driver, will continue to work longer than cloud based API.
So, Google isn't caving (yet) but they certainly are hearing the complaints!
