Google Nest raising subscription prices

If you want to have a history of recorded video, you're going to need to pay a little more.

Google Nest users who want to be able to save their recorded video are going to have to start paying up a little more. As reported by 9to5Google, prices for Google Nest Aware are going to increase by 25 to 33 percent, depending on the pricing tier.

Nest Aware is a subscription service that allows users to save video recorded by their nest devices to the cloud. Without a Nest Aware subscription, the devices are useful for their basic security options, but any ability to save video (in the case of a break in or any suspicious activity) is not available without a paid subscription plan.

Users have begun to receive emails alerting them of the price increase, and the announcement has been met with backlash by the user base. The pricing increase is as follows:

The basic Nest Aware tier will be bumped up to $8 a month (or $80 for a year) from $6 a month ($60 for a year). This tier provides a 30 day history of video, but only when motion was detected.

Nest Aware Plus is getting bumped to $15 a month ($150 a year) from $12 a month ($120 a year). This tier provides a 60 day event history and 10 days of 24/7 recorded video.
