Google has somewhat quietly added a new version of its Nest Doorbell to its Store. This refreshed version runs on wired power, and is rated to send the telemetry from its inbuilt to the user in a 4:3 aspect-ratio, rated for improved vigilance over things such as packages. It can also record video for up to 10 days on end; however, this feature requires an additional Nest subscription.

Google must have a lot to unpack during its major impending product event, as it has chosen to get its latest Nest-series doorbell's debut out of the way via Twitter and its online Store instead. The new product is technically a refresh of its first-gen wired (as opposed to battery-powered) variant; however, it takes up 30% less space now.

The Mountain View giant has re-thought its doorbell's 1.3MP sensor aspect-ratio, touting the new choice of 4:3 as superior in seeing more or who or what is at the user's door. It also asserts that the new Nest product's camera will yield the clearest and most detailed footage of its line yet.

To this end, it also now has 6x digital zoom and a 145° field of view. Then again, it records in a HD resolution only, although it is also rated for Night Vision and HDR. The Google Nest Doorbell (wired, 2022) is available from now on its new Store page for US$179, and will hopefully match your door in Snow or Ash finishes.
