Nest doorbell 2nd Gen will only announce on one Google home

I picked up a nest doorbell Gen 2, and I can only get it to notify me when the doorbell is pushed on one Google Home. How do I tie it to the rest of my Google minis throughout the house? All are in the same network. I do not have a Google Hub display at this time.

@Imlon2 

"Visitor announcements" should go to ALL Nest Hubs, Nest Minis, and Nest speakers in the same Google Nest "home/structure" on the same Google account unless any are set to "Do Not Disturb".

I have checked all the other mini's and they are not marked "Do Not Disturb"
All minis show up on my "Assistant Devices page"

and Vistor Annoucements is check in the Doorbell settings. 

I've tried turning the vistor annoucements off and back on that doesn't do anything either. 

@Imlon2 

That's strange, then. "Visitor announcements" from our Nest Hello doorbells go to all of our Nest Hubs and Nest Minis.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for your help here, MplsCustomer. I would agree, it is strange that your notifications aren't going out to all of your compatible devices, so maybe it would be best to restart them all. Try that, check the settings again and test it out. Let me know how it goes.

 

Best regards,

Brad
