How to change Nest Hub (2nd Gen) Sleep Sensing settings
You can turn the settings off, back on and even amend some features like sound events
The Nest Hub (2nd Gen) has a unique feature, specific to the display and to any other Nest device — Sleep Sensing. With this new ability, people can collect details about how well they sleep, from their respiratory rate to even whether they snore or not. The tool uses select sensors to pick up on movement, sound, light and temperature.
What also unique about this feature is you can pause it as well, and then turn it back on when you're ready to use Sleep Sensing. You can also disable select settings too — including the sound events. And you can even completely turn it off if you choose and use the Nest Hub (2nd Gen) as a standard Google display.
Whatever you choose, here's how to turn these off and on through your Google Home app.
