on-going issues with Google Home

Community Member

Hello.  I’ve been having a number of on-going issues with Google Home.  I was wondering if others are experiencing any of these and have any suggestions or fixes.  Thanks.


  1. I have to reconnect my ADT account to Google Home every other day for the last few weeks in order to have ADT specific functions work.
  2. Sometimes when I issue a verbal command to Google Home, even when standing right next to the speaker, Home will misinterpret what I say and display a bunch of B$ not related to anything I said or send a link to my phone.
  3. Routines that I’ve been using for months such as turning on lights and/or air purifiers at a specific time do not work 100% of the time.  Or not all of the commands are executed.
  4. I know that the speaker groups no longer work when adjusting volume because of Google infringing on Sonos’ patents.  I had a work around by setting up a routine and adjusting the volume of each speaker 1 by 1 to 40%.  However, that doesn’t work anymore.  Has anyone else found a work around?


Thanks again for any assistance.
