Hey google play (Radio Station). LBC in my case is no longer working as of this morning, just get “I can’t do that here but you can ask me to play it on one of your other devices” same thing happens on all 7 devices in the house. Anyone got any suggestions?

Thank you King4ADayUK - i wish LBC would announce these changes in advance, its the 2nd time one of their updates have caused things to stop working like this

Hi geejay.  No suggestions for a fix from me but I'm having the same problem.  You can leave feedback by just asking the nearest speaker to do so and leave a message.  Hopefully, if enough people grumble, a fix will be forthcoming.

Why oh why have they broken this? I use this multiple times every day, I actually bought a few more speakers just to listen to LBC through the house. 

Say LBC UK

This happened a few years back! I thought it was a player problem at the time then I sussed it out with using UK on the end too. 
Someone is screwing around at LBC HO grrrr

Why the bloody hell can the Google device give a meaningful response, like "I don't know that"?

Instead you just get "I can't do that here but you can ask me to play it on one of your other devices" ... what the hell is that supposed to mean?

Perhaps the system could look at what you have used the device for for the last few years and say that the "station no longer exists" at least then I would have an idea what I might be looking for, or even "Do you mean LBC UK?"

So happy to hear I'm not the only one. So grateful for this kind of forum. So annoying that someone somewhere hasn't put any thought into the consequences of this change, probably working 'agile'!

I create a Google Home routine in the end. 
If I say " Play LBC" it now runs "Play LBC UK" in the background. 

What's good is that it launches without saying "Streaming LBC from Global player" unnamed.png

Hey gordon861,

 

That's great to hear! Should you still need help with your Google Home or Google Nest speaker, feel free to start a new thread as I'll be locking this after 24 hours.

 

Kind regards,

Alex
