Hey Google ... Did you perform testing before releasing today's software?
Hey Google ... Turn on the kitchen lights
Sorry I don't know how to help with that. Here are other things you can try.
Hey Google still runs routines.
Google home app still works if I manually turn things on and off.
A lot of verbal commands to a smart speaker or display are broken: turn on/off anything, set a timer, set alarm ...
Interestingly, a lot of stuff still works such as: Hey Google what is 10 + 10, Hey google tell me a joke, hey Google send me directions for driving to ..., Etc.
Very annoying. Another example of why smart homes are not ready for prime time.
This is NOT happening to us (we don't control lights), but these 6 threads seem related:
