Beginning with spooky Halloween sounds, Google updated the Nest Hello earlier this year with the ability to have holiday-themed doorbell sounds. Today, the company has revealed that the Nest Hello repertoire has included a variety of Christmas and other winter holiday sounds.
The Google Nest team has been working hard to prepare for the holiday shopping season for the Nest Hello, with things like automatic package detection to battle “porch pirates” trying to steal Christmas gifts from others.
The latest addition to the feature, announced today for the Nest Hello, offers your smart doorbell a handful of winter holiday chimes like Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s Eve, along with a general “wintry” chime. Whatever sound you choose will surely bring your guests and the courier carrying your latest batch of presents a little bit of cheer.
To turn to one of the new chimes, check out the Nest app’s “Seasonal Themes” section, whose halls were covered with their own new winter theme, depicting a wreath and colored lights. You can choose one of the four new tones from here or swap back to a doorbell’s classic “ding dong.”
Like the Halloween themes, winter holiday themes from Nest Hello probably won’t stay long, so be sure to try them out while you’re in the spirit of Christmas or Hanukkah. The holiday ringtones that Pixel phones picked up earlier this year should also go great.
