Block nest doorbell ring announcements and Allow routines

Community Member

As far as I can tell the only way to block doorbell notifications on a home mini is "do not disturb". But this blocks any automated routines on that speaker. And yes this still blocks routines even if you only set do not disturb during downtime outside of the automated routines time. 🤷‍♂️

Can Google please add a block doorbell notification option that doesn't kill automated routines? A speaker notification selector for the nest doorbell would also work. Imagine you want to block doorbell rings in a bedroom 24/7. But you also want an automated routine for wake up. Not possible apparently.

Hey Vk9,


Thanks for posting. I understand that having an option to silent or turn off the notification for your doorbell alone is a great feature to use with your Google Home/Nest device, but this isn't available.
