The new brand is simply the multi-colored ‘G’ and “Nest” in Google Sans beneath. While nonetheless grey in shade, a darker shade is in use. That latter half is now what seems within the nook of all Nest digital camera streams, together with the Hello Doorbell. Leveraging the corporate’s commonplace font, it’s considerably underwhelming and devoid of persona.
