Googe Home app doesn't allow me to access my Google Wifi's advanced features

I have a Google Wifi system and I was forced to move over to using the Google Home app to configure it. However, in the Google Home app, I am unable to access DHCP IP Reservations, Port Management, and Device Mode (the last 3 settings under Advanced Settings). Any attempt to click on these three items pulls up the Privacy Settings pane.

I am using Google Home version 2.60.118 on an iPhone 6s, iOS 15.7

Hi CyLith,

 

Thanks for posting and sorry for the delay.

 

Couls you share a screenshot of the message you're getting when accessing Advanced Settings on your Home app?

 

Thanks,

Mel

Attached are the sequence of screens I get, and where I clicked on each.

Hey CyLith,

Are you able to use a different phone just to check if you will still encounter the same issue in your Google Home app? This will help us isolate the issue. We'll wait for your update.

Best,

I don’t have another phone with which to test anything. I am still having the same issue and I’m just resigned to not using those features for now.

Hey CyLith,

Thanks for the update. To confirm, have you tried to uninstall and reinstall your Google Home app? Make sure to clear cache and data before uninstalling the app. Let us know how it goes.
