If this is your first time coming across this, A ring doorbell is a bell on the outside of a house that you can ring so that the people inside will know that they have a visitor outside. It is a smart, wireless-connected device.

You can talk to Ring via your Google Home now that it’s configured. Try by saying: “Hey Google, talk to Ring.”
