This began very recently; within the past couple of days. All of my devices within earshot are responding to my commands. I'll stand in the living room and say something to the Hub located in there, and I will hear responses from the Mini in the office, the Hub max in the kitchen, and the Hub in the living room.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It looks like a lot of people are having this issue (myself included). There are some other threads where factory reset on all of the devices in your home should do the trick (I haven't tried myself yet).
Thanks for posting, and appreciate JillG for helping here.
We're glad to know that this issue is now resolved. Feel free to update this thread if you still need help with your Google Home/Nest devices, and the community will be happy to assist you.
Same problem here. All seemed to start when Google updated the Home app after losing a court battle with Sonos. Multiple devices respond to voice commands causing failure of commands or out of sync audio. Also, one of my speaker groups no longer works, even after resetting it several times. Have even changed broadband provider, but sadly no improvement. C'mon Google - fix the issues and inform your customers. They'd prefer it if you owned up and fixed the problem, rather than being aloof and proud
I started having this problem recently as well. I have several devices, and often when I speak to one that's 3-4 feet away, one in another room will respond. Sometimes even after the one I was near already replied. I set the sensitivity to the lowest level on all devices, but it didn't seem to help. This never used to be an issue.
Also I've seen things about factory resetting each device. Yeah right I'm not going around and doing 23 different devices to fix the problem. You invest in this stuff and the Google folks just screw it up and then don't care to even respond. I just went through and rebooted every single mini, Google home, nest home, and home hub that I own which is alot. This did not fix the problem by any means in fact it seems worse now. This needs to be fixed. It's been driving us nuts. We set a timer in the kitchen on the home hub and then two minis also set timers. I have three things going off at different times and have to keep saying stop stop. So basically I should only have one of these in my house apparently. Perhaps I'll be trying to send them back to Google. For double my money back refund.
Having same issue as described above, I rebooted devices, factory resetted some, but not all, reset the wifi network, had them forget the wifi network, nothing has worked. Must be something related to Google
@JillG Thanks for picking this up. I was one of the posters who posted about this issue, but can you also look at an other problems that have come up whenever the change was made? I also struggle to get one of my speaker groups to work and seem to get regular drop-outs when streaming radio. This happened around the same time so I suspect there may be a link. Also, do you have any idea how long the fix will take? Thanks. Kambo
I honestly have no idea if other issues may be part of the update related to: speaker group/Sonos nor any timeline for this multiple device response fix. Just looking through this Community and seeing odd speaker group behavior makes me wonder if the Sonos issue is related. For your drop out problem- I suggest removing your speaker groups, reboot your devices and recreate the groups. A reboot of your router may also be helpful.
