Spooky season is here, and Google is adding its annual batch of Halloween doorbell notifications to the Home app via an update undulating out this week. 

The Halloween-themed tones will be available pending the end of October. Options include an evil amusing, a skeleton dance, a spooky raven, a ghostly boo, a howling werewolf and a cackling inviting, according to The Verge.

This is the third year of Google’s seasonal doorbell updates. Google is also adding six new “evergreen” ringtones available year-round, including a birthday tone. They will arrive with the Halloween options, but only for the new Nest Doorbell (Battery), not the older Nest Doorbell (wired, 1st gen), formerly Nest Hello.
