Nest cam (battery) - siren?

Does the nest cam (battery) have a siren you can activate?

I’ve read you can call emergency contact but I’d like to be able to activate a siren if needed. It looks like this is possible with ring cameras but I haven’t found any info on the nest cam.

Sadly no,  Many other cameras on the market offer that but Google does not.  I have never understood why they don't.  It is such a simple (and popular) feature.   You can go into the app and select the FEEDBACK option and request that they add it.  But to be honest I have been requesting that (and other things) for about 2 years and nothing I  have requests (all simple mind  you) have been implements.  It feels like feedback black whole.  And no one from Google has ever responded to my requests.

Thanks for the response. I’m looking to get a video doorbell and cameras and was leaning towards the nest ones but I like that ring has the siren.
