Guys I spent hours trying to sync my devices and Google Home was being whack- tried using another phone but google would not update- a final solution that worked was the following- https://advicefortech.com/google-home/
point is set up from your main phone will not work as other posts have discussed- my back phone was not advanced enough so the third option is the desktop emulator that worked the first time!
It looks like we have come to a solution so I'm going to be locking this thread. If you have any other concerns or questions, please feel free to create a new thread.
Have a great day.
