Wondering if there is a way to limit what Google nest responds to?

Community Member

I've just installed an LED light to control with my Google nest but every time I tell it to do something it responds with up to 10 seconds of blabber and if I set the volume to zero it automatically goes up to one so I still hear it respond.. is there a way to stop it from responding to certain commands? I've seen an Alexa do the exact same commands but then not respond with words after it's done

Hi Ethaan2252,

If you create a room within the Google Home app and place the light and speaker or display in the same room then the assistant should respond with just a chime.

Have a look at the 'create and manage rooms' section from the Google Nest help center link below.

Hello everyone,

@Cathal_S, I appreciate your helpful response. 

@Ethaan2252, thanks for reaching out. I want to follow up on your request to limit the responses from your Google Nest device. Like Cathal_S suggested, you can place the light bulb and the speaker in the same room so that it will only make a chime sound to confirm that it did the action that you commanded. If you have multiple smart lights in different rooms, the device will still give you the confirmation response since we have no other way to limit it right now. I highly suggest sharing feedback about this with our product engineers, who continuously work on improving the features on our devices.

If you have other questions in mind, let me know; otherwise, I'll be locking this thread in the next 24 hours. 

Many thanks,
