Use Alarm base unit as a chime for Doorbell?

I have the Alarm system and also the video doorbell (2), i dont have a chime to this Doorbell (and sadly it does not work on Google hub), but it’s there a way to have the Alarm unit as a chime?
Not to trigger the alarm, but in the same way we can get it to sound when opening doors?

If not, please add that in firmwares to come.

Hi @Teddan. At this time, the Ring Alarm Base Station cannot be used to play chimes from Ring Doorbells or Cameras. This functionality has been requested before, which you can find on our Feature Request board. Feel free to add your vote and feedback to that request. While Ring isn’t compatible with Google hub, we are compatible with Alexa. You can learn more about receiving Ring Doorbell notifications via Alexa here. I hope this information helps!

Keeping this alive - mind boggling that this isn’t incorporated. Such a simple piece to bring your systems together.

What I’ve did was modify the door contact (placed the doorbell switch over the reedcontact) and set the setting to sound when closed. This works for me but it would be nice to have an official ring solution.
