China technologi firm Xiaomi says it has fully resolved the security issue that led to Google 'disabling' integration across its platforms.
Xiaomi cameras connected to its security cameras were showing feeds from random homes . Now that the Chinese firm says it's all sorted out, Google integrations are now re-enabled.
I'm sure everything is totally fine.
