DISH integrates Google Nest's doorbell into its TV receiver platform
DISH, a source of paid TV that also integrates apps such as Netflix, has announced that some Google Nest products can now co-ordinate with its "Hopper" or "Wally" receivers. As a result, users of both products will gain the abilty to see video from their Nest doorbells on their big screen. This update should be available from now.
Google's Nest Hello video doorbell is a product that allows the user to see who's at their door from inside the house, via screens such as smartphones and TVs. DISH, a paid TV provider, has announced that their platform can now also supply this functionality.
This will be done through a compatible DISH receiver, which can connect to high-speed household internet to deliver content from its own service and from others such as Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube and Pandora.
DISH also integrates smart-home applications such as Google's Assistant and Amazon's Alexa, and, now, some aspect of Nest. The new addition applies to the Hopper- and Wally-type receivers, although the service has a third kind of these called Joey. However, a similar update for those devices should also roll out in the next few weeks.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
