I got my camera 2 weeks ago and the super handy audible motion alerts to my Google home have stopped. This was very handy for getting the dogs in. How do I turn this back on. I have not messed with any settings because when I hooked it up, it worked perfect for me. Help please and yes I did try to search everywhere for an answer. Sincerest thanks.

Though it suited your needs, lots of folks (particularly video doorbell owners) found it very annoying to have their Google home device announce every vehicle that was going down their street.  So Arlo disabled that feature for the moment.  

 

There is no way for you to turn it back on.  Hopefully the feature will come back soon with appropriate options to control it.

Ah! I can see where that could be a deal breaker for some users. I was just excited because my other non Arlo cameras don't have this feature and this cam is solely for animal tracking. Well thank you for taking time to respond. I really appreciate it.
