Google’s Nest doorbell is one of the most useful smart home devices a person can own. However, a rule of thumb is that a device is only useful when it works. Several users have reported that the wired Nest doorbell is experiencing a bug that causes the audio to cut out constantly.

The Nest doorbell is a very useful tool for people who want to keep an eye on their front porch. It comes with a camera and a microphone so that the user can look at a camera feed of what’s going on. Also, people can actually have conversations through the doorbell. It comes in a wired and wireless variant. If you’re planning on picking up one of these devices, they retail for $179.99. Both the wired and wireless models cost the same price.

The Nest doorbell is suffering from an audio bug

There are people who can’t quite make it to the door in a timely manner. So, they are likely to have a conversation through the doorbell with the person ringing. People who are doing this will need to have consistent audio in order to have a proper conversation. Well, according to several users, after the latest update, the audio would constantly drop in and out. This is, obviously, very frustrating for the people trying to have a consistent conversation.

The audio will cut in and out, but the video feed would be just fine. So, it’s just an audio bug affecting the Nest Doorbell. According to the reports we have, this is only happening to the wired version of The Nest doorbell. However, that’s just according to the reports. For all we know, there could be people using the wireless version experiencing this issue. The folks at 9To5Google were able to replicate this issue using a wired Nest Doorbell running software version 1.71.

In any case, all users affected are expecting a speedy update from Google. Hopefully, the company will be able to send out an update to affected users quickly.
