Time triggered routine fails to make Nest hub produce audio

Community Member

I have a routine with two starters and a number of Actions

The starters include

  • When I say to my Assistant "I'm awake"
  • At a specific time

The actions include

  • Announce "Good morning"
  • Play the radio
  • After 1hr 20 min
  • Stop
  • After 5 sec
  • Tell me the time
  • Announce "It's time to get up"

The routine works if I say "Hey Google I'm awake"

At the trigger time the routine starts, but nothing is announced. However I know the routine has been triggered as if I go in to edit it it shows it's started.

Google Assistant Activity even shows the command to to play the radio on the Smart Display at the expected time, but nothing actually happens on the display

Anyone else have the same problem or know how to fix it?

Ah found the problem...

You can't have a "When I say to my Assistant" and "At a specific time" both as Starters and have the audio assigned to a specific device.
