Remove household routine

Community Member


Is it possible to remove or disable the household routines named "home" and "away"

I want the speakers to stop playing music when i leave the home so i created a custom routine, when i use the custom routine the Google assistant then asks me if i want to change my home to away.

When i awnser yes the assistent tells me that the home is already set to away?

Hey there Christian, 

Sorry to hear about the troubles you're having with your routines, I know it can be confusing, but I'm happy to help. 

I would suggest reviewing this article to learn more information about the Home and Away routines. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that disabling them is an ability that you can do. 


Please let me know if you have any other questions. 

Best regards, 

Garrett DS


After reading the article you posted I tried to add my speakers to the household routine but I could not find any of my speakers.

One solution that I found is that I can say "Ok, Google. Turn off the speakers" "Ok, Google. I'm leaving"

I thought this was supposed to be a smart system?
