Hi JojoD,

This is something that has already been reported to the Google Nest team and is currently being investigated.

I have the same issue.

I've always set the sleep timer with a routine and that worked without issue for a long time. Now the routine doesn't work and I can't even set it manually.
I saw an update on one of the other threads that mentioned a sequential restart of modem and all devices to resolve the problem.
I've gone through the sequential restart of everything, as mentioned, but the issue still persists.
I get the error, "sleep timers can only be set for a maximum of 24 hrs", even though I'm only requesting the device to stream a radio station until 9:45 (15 mins in the future). I've also tried, "stream radio station for 15 minutes" and get acknowledgement, but the radio doesn't turn off.

I've had to manually set a routine to "stop" after a certain time as a work around, but that's frustrating if you don't go to bed at the same time every night.
I have sent feedback to Google.
Hoping this can be resolved sooner rather than later!!

Hi folks,


@Cathal_S, thanks for the help.


@JojoD, @johnlisle, our team is aware about sleep timers that aren’t working for turning off music at the specified time and are still working on a fix. For news and updates about sleep timers, keep an eye on the recommended answer on the main thread. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to start a new one for I will be locking this thread after 24 hours.
