Up until the last couple of days I could instruct my mini nest to “sleep in 20 minutes” and 20 minutes later is would stop. But now it although it acknowledges the command, it keeps on playing after the time period. I have tried saying “stop in 20 minutes” as well as specifying an actual time, but all to no avail. I have two speakers, and they both are doing the same.
Does anyone know what has changed?

Here’s what support is saying
We have been made aware of reported issues with the Sleep Timer. We’re looking into possible solutions. For the meantime, we would like you to send a feedback about this issue with the steps provided below.
1. Turn on device usage data and crash reports:
2. Reproduce the issue (Try setting a sleep timer). After the issue occurred, send feedback from the speaker device via voice command (OK Google, send feedback) then say the keywords "GHT3 sleep timer not working".
I hope everyone is doing well. We're happy to confirm that we've rolled out a fix for this behavior. Are you still experiencing the Sleep Timer feature issue? We would like to know so we can follow up with the team.
Looking forward to your responses.
Well, at least it's not something that I've done. I've got two Nest Hubs, and it's doing the same on both. I can't play any BBC radio services at all.
Everything is great on my Nest Mini through.
Everything is OK on both of my Nest Mini, but neither of my Nest Hubs can play any BBC radio services. They just search for them on Google. Can other people please try this. I used to just say "OK Google, play BBC Radio 1" and it would automatically play. Now it goes to a google seach.
Hello Juni, this message is an addition to my earlier message in which I said the Sleeptimer function doesn’t work with yet:
Until a few weeks ago, the following worked perfectly:
One of my routines was 'Set a sleep timer for 10 minutes' when I said “Sleep timer 10”.
The media currently playing was stopped after 10 minutes. Whether it was radio or Spotify.
Now when I say “Sleeptimer 10” the following text appears on the screen of the Nest Hub 2:
‘You can set a timer when I play music or an audiobook. I'll stop playing after the time you set. Just say something like "Set a sleep timer for 20 minutes" after I start playing your media.
Following up this command, "Set a sleep timer for 20 minutes," sets an alarm that goes off after ten minutes!
I did a reset on my Google Nest hub but still it doesn't work.
When I say "Set a sleep timer for 20 minutes," an alarm is set that goes off after 20 minutes!
while previously it would stop the media playing after 20 minutes.
Please solve this! I wouldn't be so hard, would it? With all you clever people.
I have just tested on my living room speaker. It stopped after the requested time, just 2 minutes for the test. Hopefully it will apply to all 4 speakers.
Please ask the Google Team to google 'regression testing'
