We have many smart lights linked to our house either from Phillips Hue or Lutron Caseta. For instance the living room has 8 lights, 2 table lights, 2 fan lights, 4 recessed lights. The lights are labeled “Living Room Recessed Light 1”, “Living Room Recessed Light 2”, and so on. We used to be able to say “Turn on Living Room Recessed Lights” and only those 4 lights would be controlled. If we said “Turn on Living Room lights” all 8 lights would be controlled. Recently all 8 lights respond no matter what you say. Has something changed? Do I need to make separate rooms for each group of lights?
Thanks for posting here in the Google Nest Community.
This is not the experience that we wanted you to have, let me help you out. Which Nest speaker/display do you own? Your suggestion is another workaround. Before you do that, you can try to do a sequential reboot. First, unplug your Nest speakers/ displays for 30 seconds, then do the same thing to your Wi-Fi router to refresh both devices and your Wi-Fi signal.
Let me know how it goes.
Thanks for trying that. Sorry that you are still experiencing the issue. Yes, let's go ahead and unlink and relink the lights, then observe if this will make any difference. Check the steps below on how to do it.

Hope this helps.
