Double tap is overworking and need help.

I have to tap multiple times to activate my screen and if it activates, only lasts for a second. Then I have to double tap again and again. Getting annoying. 

what can I do to deactivate this double tap to activate feature on my Nexthub max? 

thank you!

Maybe you could try rebooting your Nest Hub Max, either by unplugging it for a minute or by using the reboot option in the Google Home app.

I did reboot but no change. Is there a tab on the app that I need to change?

@Ekualily 

I don't know why you have to double-tab; we don't have to on our Nest Hubs or Nest Hub Max.

Hi folks,

 

@MplsCustomer, thanks for the help.

 

@Ekualily, that certainly hasn't been easy for you ― a few questions: when did this issue start? Does it happen every time you tap your Nest Hub Max? There are no options to do changes on the screen's sensitivity and I know that you've already done a reboot but, it would help a lot if you could do a sequential reboot also. Unplug the power cord of your router followed by your Nest Hub Max. Plug them back in after 5 minutes tops. Restarting your phone might also help. This will help refresh the link between your devices, giving them a breather.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Best,

Dan

I’ve tried restarting, still the same. This was not an issue when I first got the Nesthub. My kids are very attached to it watching YouTube videos etc so I tried to find an option on the app to dissuade them from using the hub. Not sure exactly what I clicked on the app but since then, I noted that for any touch of the screen, it says “double tap to activate.” And if I double tap, it doesn’t go away. I have to double tap for every tap on the screen and it’s pretty annoying. I’m looking for ideas for what to do. 

Im having the same issue and it's driving me f****** crazy. Don't know what to do, just about to throw it out a window. But I find out or figure out whats going I'll let you know.

Hey folks,

 

Sorry for the delayed response. Could you post a video showing the issue on your device so we can take a deeper look? Also, is the issue specific to Nest Hub Max? Please provide the current firmware version of your device. Follow the steps below to know-how:

 

  1.  Swipe up from the bottom of the display screen.
  2. Tap Settings >  About device. You should find your "Cast firmware version."
    • For Nest Hub (1st gen) and Nest Hub Max: If “Fuchsia Version” is also listed, this means your device runs Fuchsia.

Cheers,

Muddi

Struggling for a year.  My Nest Hub Max doesn't even swipe up....sometimes I can only double tap.  Everything else I have to do verbally:(

Hi Muddi,

Thanks for your help. because of the double tap to activate, I can't even scroll up on the screen. I did take a video but unsure how to load it here.

Should I return this product and get a new one? 

a picture is posted. I can’t post a video but this red line to the edge of the screen shows throughout and won’t respond to taps to scroll up or sides. So annoying.

Hi there! 

This site is not easiest to use. I do have both google nesthub Max and the smaller one. The small one does not have this issue. It's under my husband's google account. The NestHub Max was purchase 12/1/22 from Dell.com. Issue started 2-3weeks post purchase when I tried to create a downtime to prevent my elementary aged kids from spending all their free time on the device. I tried to post a picture of the issue a few posts back; i'm guessing you didn't see it.
