Is Ring compatible with Google Home?

Before you begin, it's important to confirm that your Ring Video Doorbell and Google Home can communicate with each other. Fortunately, Ring devices are compatible with Google Home, allowing you to integrate them easily.

Benefits of adding a Ring Video Doorbell to Google Home

Google Home is a line of smart devices with the Google® voice-activated assistant built in. Think smart speakers, smart TVs, security cameras, and smart hubs. They connect to various internet services to allow you to play music, control smart home devices, get answers to questions, and manage tasks through voice commands.

Integrating your Ring doorbell with Google Nest Home brings several advantages:

  • Centralized control. Manage your home security through voice commands or the Google Home app, giving you control from anywhere in your house or on the go.
  • Real-time alerts. Receive alerts on your Google Home speakers and on your phone when someone is at your door, so you never miss a visitor.
  • Convenient features. Stream your live video feed from your Ring Video Doorbell to your Google Home Hub™ or Chromecast®-enabled TV for a quick view of your doorstep without needing to check your phone.

How to add your Ring Video Doorbell to Google Home

Before you can connect your Ring Video Doorbell to Google Home, you need to ensure it's properly set up and installed. Once installed and functioning, you can link it with your Google Home by following a few straightforward steps:

  1. Open the Google Home app on your smartphone or tablet.
  2. Tap the + icon > Set up device > Works with Google.
  3. Type “Ring” in the search bar, and select it from the list of available services. You’ll be prompted to enter your Ring account details.
  4. After logging in, authorize Google Home to access your Ring devices. Choose which Ring devices you want to control with Google Home, then follow any additional onscreen instructions to complete the setup.

Test the setup by asking Google Assistant™ to show you the front door or to announce when someone rings the doorbell.
