How to delete a personal routine

Community Member

Is it possible to delete a routine under personal routines? Everything says to just go to the routine you want to delete and hit delete but there's no delete button available anywhere for said routine. Also is it possible to change the starter action under a routine? All the options are grayed out for the ones already there and I want to remove one starter action to put under a different household routine.

Hi mahdi0258,


This is not the experience we want you to have, let me help you. A few questions: which Nest speakers are we working with? When did your issue begin? Were there any recent changes made? Were you able to delete or edit a personal routine before? What country are you located in?

It would help a lot if you could do a sequential reboot first: 


  1. Unplug the power cord of your router, followed by your Nest speakers.
  2. Plug them back in after 3 minutes.
  3. Restarting your phone might also help.
  4. Make sure all devices are on the same Wi-Fi network.


Could you also set your phone’s language to EN-US and see the difference. Also, see this guide about creating and managing routines.


Let me know how it goes.
