Enable Nest Visitor Announcements on Google Home

How to Enable Nest Visitor Announcements on Google Home

Your Google Assistant can announce that when someone rings your door, and if the device contains a screen, you can also see who is there. Here’s how to set your Nest Hello to work with your Google Assistant-enabled speaker or display.

You can get announcements from your Nest Hello Video Doorbell:

  • Google Assistant-Speaker
  • Google Assistant-Enabled Display

Install Nest Hello and Google Home App

On your phone or tablet, make sure you have both:

  • Latest version of Nest App for iOS or Android
  • Latest version of the Google home app for iOS or Android

Setup Nest Hello Doorbell and Google Home

Before making visitor announcements, you have to install your products and add them to your respective app. If you have not done so already:

  • Install Your Nest Hello Video Doorbell
  • Set up your Google Home Speaker or display in your home
  • Turn on personalized results for your Google helper-enabled speaker or display

Turn ON Nest Visitor Announcements on Google Home  

To turn ON visitor Announcements:

  • Open the Nest app.
  • Tap on your Nest Hello video doorbell.
  • Tap on Settings-> “Visitor Announcements”

When asked, follow the onscreen prompts in the Google Home app to complete setup.

How does Nest Visitor Announcement will work?

  • When someone rings your door, it will still send a notification to any phone in which the nest app is installed, and your indoor chime will still ring. However, besides this, your Google subsidiary-enabled device will now announce the visitor.
  • If you have a Google Assistant-capable smart display, its notification will include live video from your doorbell.
  • If you have familiar alerts, your Google Assistant can show or say the name given to you by the visitor. Keep in mind, you’ll need to enable alert in Nest App and specify the name for those people you have asked to identify your doorbell. Otherwise, your Google assistant will only declare that someone is at the door.
