Really want my phone to ring when Nest Doorbell is pressed

Community Member

I really would like to be able to have Google Nest Doorbell ring on my phone, rather than just a push notification.  For comparison, Ring Video Doorbell does actually ring with the chosen doorbell chime on as many phones as you want when the doorbell is pressed.  Luckily I have one Google Nest Hub and two Google Android TVs.  And if the TVs are on, I will also get the chosen doorbell chime along with the doorbell room chosen announcement when pressed,  The notifications are inadequate.  I assume like me, most users receive hundreds on notifications on their phones each day.  While I have a small audible beep play for each notification, I cannot chose to have my phone play a long ringtone  for hundreds of notifications per day, that is too distracting.  Additionally I have found no way to only play a chosen ringer for Google Home Notifications, and all of the other notifications from every other app.  Really would like a way to have the Google Nest Doorbell ring a distinct doorbell chime on my phone,
