Anyone else seem to have problems with the app updating it's home or away location?
Since last update where the design changed the home app doesn't do this anymore
Also it doesn't show up as a shortcut in my phone's device controle anymore (Pressing power button long shows a menu where normally all home devices are shown and to control them), as if home doesn't pass on the info within the phone.
Already tried reinstalling the app
I understand that this can be confusing but I definitely wanted to stop by and see how I could help.
Just wanted to double check to see if you were still needing help on this? If so, what troubleshooting steps have you tried?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Seems to be a bug in the latest Google home app. Updating to the latest version kills the home away detection, even tho I tried setting all permisions, memory/ram and battery settings for this app so it doesn't get killed and can access everything and always.
Reversing back to version 220.127.116.11 fixes the problem immediately, and the home away detection is shown again in the activity overview.
Letting Google play automatically update it again to a newer version, and trying to set it up right with all permissions and settings... Same happens again and the activity overview stays empty
I apologize for the delay in this response, but I wanted to hop in here to let you all know that this issue has been resolved for Android users. You just need to update your app to the latest one in the Google Play Store.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
This problem has definitely not been solved in the latest version. Tried it and immediately my away status isn't altered anymore, also I ln the home history no changes of phone location are noted.
Reversed back to the old version again and set the tight settings, everything is working
April 28 older version shows my phone location altering home status. After updating may 2, nothing happens, 2 may the only thing triggering the home is the phone of my wife who runs the old version
Since it's been a while since this thread was last updated, we'd like to check if you still need help with this.
If you're having the same issue, please give these steps a try:
Proble still not solved in latest version. In away settings of Google home it doesn't ask me to set up this phone as the location track device as it does in the old version.
Reverted to old version, immediately everything works and gets detected again as you can see with "phone location" under you came home message. Other triggers are from another phone with old version
This is really bad Google...
