Google Nest mini as school bell

Community Member

I work in a small school, all rooms lead to a middle hallway. Instead of an expensive solution, I had the idea of installing a Google Nest as a bell.

Since I dont have a Nest yet, I have a few questions:

- Can you automate custom audiofiles to play at certain times? (only once)

- If yes, has it to be an online-stored audiofile or has nest a built in storage?

- Would it be loud enough? It is normally very quiet and all the rooms are open.

Thanks for any advice!!!

Hi JasonY,

Thanks for posting here in the Google Nest Community.

We thank you for considering our product. I totally understand that these are good features to use with the Nest doorbell, but, these features are not yet available. I'd suggest you submit feedback about it, here's how.

Here is a helpful article that can provide you with more details about the Nest doorbell audio setting.

Let us know if you have other questions and concerns otherwise, we will be locking this thread after 24 hours.
