Nest Mini doesn´t play any sound for Reminders

Community Member

When I ask my Nest Mini to set a Reminder it works normally, asking for a title a time etc.

But when the time comes for the reminder I just get a push notification on my phone. The Nest Mini doesn't do anything, I want it to make sound and alert me, otherwise there's no point to setting a reminder.

Hi MisterDM,


When it's time for the reminder, your Google Nest Mini will play a sound, and Google Assistant will normally announce “I have a reminder for [name].”.


On your Google Nest Mini speaker, the lights will pulse, then a single white light will stay on for 10 minutes. To hear the reminder, you can use one of these voice commands:


  • "Hey Google, what's up?"
  • "Hey Google, what are my notifications?"
  • "Hey Google, what are my reminders?"


If the reminder is not working as intended, try to do these steps:


  1. Unplug your Google Nest Mini for a minute > Plug back in.
  2. Open the Google Home app > Tap the Devices tab > Choose your Google Nest Mini.
  3. At the top right, tap Settings > Notifications and digital wellbeing.
  4. Tap the slider On to toggle notifications on or off.


Let me know how it goes.


Kind Regards,
