You have to link with yeeligth

Unfortunately that only looks like it works for lighting systems and nothing else.

Just bought a Xiaomi IoT, and can't link it to Google Home... How glad am I to see this thread... 🙄

I have the same problem. I did the same thing, I tried to link my Mi home app to both android and iOS but it keeps on crashing. 

Community Member

Same here. But I can control my lights from the MiHome app

Because you're controlling the lights directly - not using any third party software. This problem is on Google's side.

Hello community,

Since last night all my Mi Smart Devices stopped working on Google Home app and couldn't be controlled using Google Nest Speakers.

I tried to "Reconnect Account" and also tried to "Unlink account" and add again.

Getting error: Could not reach Mi Home. Please try again.

Tried clearing the app data; restarted the phone and google home devices; uninstall - reinstall Mi home and Google Home app. Still facing the same issue.

Is it just me or others are also facing the same issue?

@GoogleNestTeam, please look into this on priority.

I have the same problem.
Unlinked Mi Home account to resolve different problem and can't link it now.

Community Member

Me too

I'm also facing the same issue 😞

My Mi lights stopped responding, so I unlink the connection to Mi Home and since then I can't re-link it.
Tried to reboot my device, uninstall the Mi Home App nothing works.

Is it a regional or global thing? I'm using the Mi Home Israel Region.

@GoogleNestTeam, any idea what's going on?

Same problem in Italy

Me too!

Same problem in Romania

This worked great for me:

Install Samsung Smart Things App and connect Xiaomi Devices in this way:

Add devices: search by brand - Yeelight and the devices will be linked to Smart Things first

Then go to Google Home and add Smart Things.

Thank you for this workaround. It worked for me 

Same problem here. I'm from Europe, so... It's likely a global problem.

Same here since the night of 2nd of November, same error, from Mexico using Singapore region. 

Community Member

Same in Italy, @GoogleNestTeam do you have news for us? 

Same exact thing. Israel region. 

Community Member

Same here, not sure this is Xiaomi API issue or Google Nest Issue.

Community Member

Same here ,any solutions?

Same here unlinked to add new Mi devices and couldn't link Mi home to Google home anymore from yesterday.

Reporting from Poland


Same, got a new Robo vac yesterday and have been struggling to link the Mi Home account to Google Home/Assistant since then. 

P.S: I am in Australia, so definitely a global issue.

If it’s a Roborock, you can load the Roborock app and pair that with Google to work. 

Me too, same problem in Italy

Same here in NZ. All my MI Home devices can no longer be linked. What happened?

Community Member

Same here in KR. Mi home App doesn't work now on Google home.

Community Member

Same on Spain. Working with Samsung's smarthings but failing with mi home and meross apps.

Community Member

Is it not working only in Google home or you can't link it also through Samsung's smartthings itself?

*Trying to understand if this case indicate if it's a Google home issue or Mi Home issue.

Hi only in Google Home
