- Why do I need to migrate my Nest Account from Works With Nest (WWN) to Works With Google Assistant (WWGA)?
Google has informed us they are overhauling their NEST thermostat tracking and control system and hence, will only permit control and access to thermostat devices from the WWGA system. Without you migrating over your device, we cannot send out automated signals to turn off your thermostat before an #OhmHour and switch it back on after an #OhmHour. We encourage all NEST thermostat users to do this to ensure robust #OhmHour reductions for future #OhmHours.
