The party bell rings from Nest has arrived and there is no need to subscribe

Just like last year, the available themes include Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and a general one for Winter. Each theme has various different ringtones within it, such as Jingle Bells, Winter Sleighbells, Ma’oz Tzur, Hanukkah Dreidel, and Auld Lang Syne. Check out what they sound like in the video below.

The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without altering the ringtone on your doorbell to a festive chime that is sure to upset the rest of the family. If you have a wired or battery-powered Nest Doorbell, now is the time to select your seasonal theme via the Nest app.

Highlights

  • To change your ringtone to one of these seasonal themes, head to the Nest app, then go to Settings > Device options > Doorbell theme. You can also do this through the Google Home app if you have one of the newer models. They’ll be available until January 4, so make the most of them while they’re around.

  • What’s different this time around is that you don’t need a Nest Aware subscription to be able to set a seasonal theme — in the true holiday spirit, anyone can use them (provided you have a Nest Doorbell, that is). The ringtones will also play throughout the house on your Google Nest speakers and displays for all the family to hear.
