Can I start/stop timers on multiple devices at the same time?

Community Member

I work at home so sometimes (often) I want to set a timer for something (put water in the pool for 30 minutes) and I'll start the timer in my office but then get busy with a project in garage and don't hear the timer.  Can I give the timer command in my office (google hub) to set a timer on all devices in my home simultaneously?  So I can start the timer in the office but hear it in the garage or bedroom (or all speakers).

No, the timer will only sound on the speaker or display you created it on, unfortunately. I’d encourage you to also send this feedback directly to Google. You will not receive a response, unless Google need more details from you, however the team are still reading the feedback.

Hi folks,


jodic, thanks for reaching out. Timer feature is device specific. Our team is working hard to deliver the best experience for our users — I'd suggest you submit feedback about it, here's how. Keep your eye on the Google Nest Community page for any updates. 


Please let me know if you have other questions or concerns as I will be locking this in 24 hours if I won't hear back from you again. Feel free to start a new thread and we'll be happy to help.
