No longer recognised command "turn on X"

Community Member

Up until a few months ago, I used to be able to say "Turn on X" "Turn on the X" (where X would be a device or group of device such as my studio speak system, my tv, a specific light or group of lights) same for turning of off, but now I have to say "turn the X on" or "Turn X on", for some specific devices it still works, so I can't explain what its going on. but its very annoying. I feel like good assistant has gotten worse recently, whatever they changed, i wish they would change it back.
