How to hear a chime instead of voice on Nest Doorbell

Community Member

I just set up my nest doorbell with Google home speaker. Every time the doorbell rings, the loud voice says "visitor front door." How can I change it so only a chime sound plays in the Google speaker? The chime switch isn't available in my settings bc it uses battery power.





Other customers have also asked for a chime sound only on "Visitor announcements" on Nest Hubs and Nest Minis, but there currently is no way to do that. By the way, the "chime switch" in the Google Home app is only for your indoor chime connected to a transformer when the doorbell is wired.

Wow, I can't believe they won't just program that in! Do you know if there is a separate chime I can purchase through Nest that works with the battery doorbell?


I don't think so.
