A recent survey update for its Google Nest application —where users can regulate the firm’s recently rebranded cord of smart home products—hints at impending festive themes, the initial of which seems to be some frightening new ringtones for the Nest Hello Doorbell.
First sighted by 9to5 Google, an application update this week puts the groundwork for a “Seasonal themes” part in the Nest Hello Doorbell settings.

Google has not announced when this choice will become accessible to customers, but chances are it will be sooner or later. I imply Halloween is less than two weeks away.
Buck up, guys. As per 9to5 Google, it seems as this spooky, scary coverings theme can also pertain to other Google Assistant-enabled phones you may have lying through the house, like the Nest Hub Max or Nest Mini, given they have visitor announcements facilitated.
There is also no phrase from Google yet interesting what exactly these “Spooky noises” will be. We have reached out to Google to discern if they can allow us in on the details, but in the while, I also have aa limited suggestions for some really terrifying tones they may like to consider:
