I have a routine to play the news on youtubetv in the morning, then another routine to stop it.
This display is a part of a large speaker group. today i played music on the speaker group, but when the time came, the routine to stop the single display caused the whole group to stop.
Please fix this bug.
Sorry to hear about your experience with your Google Home/Nest device, but thanks for bringing this up. A few questions: when did the issue start? What are the lists of devices on your speaker group? Have you tried creating a new routine with the same action? Is this a scheduled routine?
Looking forward to your response.
The issue started when I created my routine to start and stop a youtubeTV news channel next to my bed in the morning. This was a month ago.
Here is a list of my devices:
Master Bedroom Hub Nighstand 1 Hub V1
Master Bedroom Hub Nightstand 2 Hub V2
Master Bathroom Display Hub V1
Kitchen Display 1 Hub Max Yes
Patio Speakers Chromecase Audio
Living Room Speaker Home Max
Office Display Hub V1
Nursery Display Hub Max
Bathroom Speaker Google Home
Laundry Room Speaker Google Home
Garage Speaker Google Home
Yes, i have tried making a new routine.
Yes it is a scheduled routine. 1 routine turns on the new channel at 7am, one routine stops the news channel at 8am. But if I play music on my "everywhere" group before 8am, this routine stops the music on the everywhere group.
When the hub that is getting the stop command is not in the speaker group, the group does not stop when the routine runs.
can you let me know what specific setting you are referring to in the home app - "assign default display" ? do you mean "default tv"? in that case, no there is no default TV setup.
Thanks for confirming. Please note that if you make edits to a group that currently casts media (This also applies when stopping one speaker on the group). The group playback will stop and all audio devices in the group will stop playing. You'll need to return to the Cast-enabled app or say a voice command to start casting media again.
Here's a helpful link for your reference.
Yes I still need help as this seems like a bug not a feature.
If I have a group playing music and I say to one of the speakers "hey google, stop" and it stops the whole group then that makes some sense.
But if I am playing music on a group and say "hey google, stop the master bedroom speaker", that should just stop the one speaker that was requested, not the entire group.
Do you disagree?
Yes, logically one would expect that if a group of speakers is playing music and you specify what device you want to stop, it would just stop the one you specifically asked to stop, not the whole group. correct?
That's the whole reason for specifically naming the one speaker you want to stop. Or else, how could you just stop one speaker of a group without affecting the rest?
Thanks for the response. The option to stop just one speaker in the speaker group while playing is not yet supported. We're always looking for ways to improve. I'd suggest you submit feedback about it, here's how.
Let us know if you have other questions and concerns otherwise, we will be locking this thread after 24 hours.
