Delayed phone notifications

Community Member

Not sure if this is a Nest or a Pixel 7 Pro issue, but I'm getting seriously delayed notifications when someone appears in front of my wired nest doorbells. Yesterday I got one that was 54 minutes late. I tried restarting the phone, turning off adaptive battery, and giving the Nest app unrestricted battery access but nothing worked. Any ideas on how to solve this?

Hi @Kholar 

Read about some reports by cleaning up the unknown faces within the Nest Doorbell settings.
Maybe also be worth a shot to set your doorbell as a priority device on your router if possible.

So I have been having this issue for about a week or so on my P7P. I have always given nest unrestricted battery access before and never had a problem. I am guessing it is a server side issue because my phone will recognize it was 7 minutes ago (or whatever) when the notification comes. I am guessing it might have something to do with the nest integration with Google home but hoping someone from Google/nest will chime in.

Hi everyone,


Thank you for posting and sharing your efforts to resolve your concern. I apologize that the Nest device isn’t working properly.


A few questions: what generation of wired Nest doorbell do you have? Does it happen on multiple devices? Have you tried switching from Wi-Fi to mobile data? Was the event detected and recorded in the event history? Also, are you using the Google Home or the Nest app?


Let’s try the steps below (trigger a notification after each step):


  1. Sign in to your account on another mobile device and test.
  2. Connect the Nest device to a different network (Wi-Fi or mobile data).

Let me know how it goes.


I appreciate the help, RXShorty.

It looks like the issue disappeared after two system updates to my Pixel 7 Pro this week. I didn't change anything. The updates from Nest are now immediate.
