A Reddit user found that his Google Nest Hub wasn’t displaying a camera feed from his Xiaomi device when asked. Rather, the Hub was showing feeds from what appears to be cameras in the homes of random people who bought the same hardware. Each time he asked for a feed, a new camera appeared showing a still from that other person as can be seen below. There are also several examples on the Reddit post including an image of a sleeping baby.

There are a lot of questions around this, but we can assume that this probably has nothing to do wit the Google Nest Hub. Rather, it’s likely an issue with Xiaomi’s software. The camera’s owner noted it was a Xiaomi Mijia camera running on firmware version 3.5.1_00.66.

Google's statement on this:
We’re aware of the issue and are in contact with Xiaomi to work on a fix. In the meantime, we’re disabling Xiaomi integrations on our devices.
