You know that short, satisfying sound that you hear when you successfully connect to a Google Smart Display or speaker? Well, Google's about to ruin it. 9to5Google has discovered that the latest Nest Hub preview firmware has a much gentler sound, and it's all sorts of wrong and confusing.

This new sound seems to only be on the Nest Hub with the latest v1.52 Cast firmware.
