Google Home Assistant Original Arlo wire free camera

Any idea when streaming to Chromecast via Google Assistant will be available on the original Arlo wire free cameras. Fairly disappointed that this wasn't rolled out with all the other models.

I'm sure Arlo want to try and have as many customers upgrading their model of camera. There are a lot of us who adopted the use of Arlo cameras very early when there were others on the market much cheaper. Don't forget about the customers that backed your product from the start.
The other cameras are still on the market!

I do not have an ETA on when google assistant integration will be available for Arlo Wire Free cameras. For more information on google assistant, take a look here: How do I connect my Arlo cameras to the Google Assistant app?

Jimmyfriend,

 

No, the original Arlo Wire-Free cameras are not currently supported. For more information, take a look here: How do I connect my Arlo cameras to the Google Assistant app?

Re: Arlo Wire free and google assistant

If I upgrade the base station to the newer ones will it be supported? Or would I just need to upgrade to the newer arlo pro cameras?

Edit - inapproriate answer.

 

It's the cameras that need to be supported, not the base stations. At least, that's how I interpret it.

Will the original Arlo Wire-free get Google assistant support?

I recently purchased a Google Home mini and was going to purchase an Arlo doorbell, however, I found out the original Arlo is currently unsupported for casting and am waiting to find out if there are any plans for added support.

Re: Have Google Home and Chromecast compatible with Arlo Wire-Free Camera HD

Dear Arlo Employee,

I believe this is less of a new idea and more of a consumer demand.   Or is it time to cancel my Premium subscription?

Orginal Arlo Support with Google Assistant

Make the orginal Arlo compatible with Google Assistant. That way it works with Google hub.

Re: Google casting

Seems to me that its time for a firmware update. They work on google assistant and chromecast, just not reliably. Purchased this equipment as a package and did my reasearch about compatibility. As stated before... please fix!

Re: Unable to sync to Google Home Assistatant

Hi, I have the Arlo pro 2 wireless cameras. VMS3330 is the model number here in the UK. I could not get the cameras to stream the video on Google home. I contacted Arlo support who said it is not supported on the wireless range... which is a shame.
