Possible to get only the sound cue, when turning on/off lights from different room

Community Member


Is there any way to get Google assistant to just play the sound cue, when turning something on or off from a different room?

I'm in the kitchen and want to turn off the lights in my bedroom.
I say to my Nest Hub "Hey Google, turn off lights in bedroom" and instead of it answering; "yes, hello, I have now turned off your lights in the bedroom and I am speaking very loud and unnessarily, would you like anything else?" (this is an exaggeration) I just want the 'Du-dong' sound.
I know that this is what happens when you are controlling lights in the same room and that's nice but I would like to have it for all rooms, all the time.

I don't need it to speak, when just controlling lights.

EXCEPT: I do want it to speak if an error happens or the lights are disconnected, but if this does not work in combination, I would prefer just the sound cue. 


Thank you for your response. 
This was not exactly what I was looking for but it is somewhat helpful in understanding that what I want it to do is not possible at this point in time.

I can see people in the comments of the link, is also asking for what I am asking. 
Hopefully it will be possible some time in the near future.
