Hi
At the moment arlo doorbell only make announcement to echo show when door bell is pressed. When will you release skills to show live feed automatically to echo show? This feature was release for Ring Doorbell in March 2020. Arlo developers working on this?

I purchased arlo video doorbell on same day after its debut in the market, however it did not have live feed to echo show or nest hub right after button pressing which already had about 8 seconds delays by announcement. Locating the ringing cell phone, sliding "Accept" on cell phone to view the visitor took a couple of more seconds. By the time to see the visitor in video camera, the visitor is impatiently knocking on the door or has walked away. Can Arlo make it next priority to have an own intelligent device or contracted to two dominated ,amazon and google, to have automatic streaming on echo  show or nest hub for a quick glimpse . Wireless video doorbell is a great move after wired one to take over whole residential doorbell market along with strong camera system, but we need this function to show live feed automatically after pressing the button ,please.

The wireless doorbell is not very efficient at all.  I usually end up having to go and look out the window or through the peephole in the door to see who is there.  Unless I want to wait a few minutes for the feed to come through via my phone app or Echo show 5.  The quality of design and usefulness to actually see people who are at the door when they ring the doorbell is not what you think you would get for an expensive doorbell.  I have four Pro3 cameras, and they are “okay”.  I have the arlo doorbell, and it has proved to be very limited  as a video doorbell. I would not recommend getting one if you are looking for a fast and efficient doorbell that consistently shows who is at the door immediately and automatically.

September of 2021 and this feature still doesn’t exist. Posting here to hopefully bump this topic up so the people at arlo can hopefully get a clue and fix this glaring issue
