I want to ask Google Home verbally to add an item to a specific list in google keep

Community Member

"Ok Google. Add butter to Grocery List on Google Keep"

1. When I do this, google home asks me to allow assistant personal results on device. You can change this in assistant settings.

2. When I ask how do it do that, it says open google home and go to settings

3. When I go google home I finally found the device name after many many tries (I haven't been able to figure out how to get google home to identify itself by device name. When I ask the google home its name, it gives a trying-to-be-cute response -- "I'm google assistant, my occupation is. . ." Seems a device should know it specific name, not the category. It's as if you ask me my name and I said "I'm human, and my occupation is. . .". Terrible. Please be functional, not cute)

4. The device is unfortunately only listed under "Local devices", not where all the other devices are. And when I tap on Settings within this device, I get a blank page.

Can someone please help me fix this rat's nest?

Devices show up under "local devices" if they're connected to the same Wifi network as your phone but you've not assigned it to a room or it was not setup with your account. The easiest way to fix this is to reset the speaker, and set it up again, making sure to assign it to a room during setup.
