Not able to hear sound

Community Member

Just this week I have noticed that my app does not have sound. I tried to talk into it today to someone outside and they could hear me but I couldn't hear them. I checked the microphone status on the app and my phone and all is good. How can I fix this?

Hello Katherineflatt,


Thanks for reaching out to the Community. I’m sorry to hear that you’re having issues with the Nest doorbell. I'd be happy to take a look at this for you. 


Follow the troubleshooting steps below:


  1. Disconnect any Bluetooth devices paired to your phone (if any), such as earbuds, smartwatches, etc.
  2. Check the Google Home app permissions: Go to the phone’s Settings > Apps > Google Home > Permissions, and make sure Microphone is enabled.
  3. Test if you can now hear the other person on your phone.

Let me know how it goes.
