Is there a way to delete or disable home and away routines because now It won't save it because it thinks there is no name for the routines

Hey Aden,


Thanks for reaching out.


To make sure, are you trying to edit actions in your routines? What Google Nest or smart devices do you have? Also, what exact message you're getting when you're trying to create the routines?


Give these steps a try:


  1. Open the Google Home app and select Routines.
  2. Tap Set up Home & Away Routines.
  3. Select the routines for how devices and settings should adjust:
    1. When the first person comes home
    2. When everyone’s away
  4. (Optional) Select the devices to determine if someone’s home.
  5. (Optional) Set up the mobile phone’s location to be used for presence sensing. Enter the home address and put the pin on the map to confirm.

Let us know how it goes.
