Hub Max + Nest Hello Doorbell?

I am trying to connect my Hub Max to my Nest Hello Doorbell so that I get a notification and/or sound (preferably sound) when someone rings the doorbell. Is that even possible? I haven’t found any answers online, and I don’t currently have a chime box I can hook the circular “fob” to. Any ideas?

In the Google Nest app, select the doorbell, select Settings, then select Visitor Announcements and turn it on.

If your Nest Hub Max is in the same "home"/"structure" as your Nest Hello Doorbell, you should get visitor announcements.

Turn on "Visitor announcements" in the settings for your doorbell in the Google Home app (for Google Nest Doorbell [Battery]} or the Google Nest app (for Google Nest Hello Doorbell).

I have the Hello Doorbell (wired), so I'm in the Nest App. It is up to date. Here's what I'm seeing:

 

Settings>Notifications>Products (Doorbell)>

  • Notification Type
  • When to send
  • People
  • Packages
  • All Other Motion
  • Sound

None of those options give me the ability to link someone ringing the doorbell to my Hub, nor any other options in the settings section. 

 

Having just set up the Hub Max, I'm safe to assume it is also up to date. The Hub Max still does not have any notifications nor sound when someone rings the doorbell... Appreciate the direction, but I'm still stuck!
