My google nest mini keeps playing sleep sound all night when I use the bedtime-routine. Earlier it stopped after about 1 hour, but now it keeps playing all night. I have activated the sleep sound country night.
What can I do to make it play for 1 hour again? I don’t want it to keep playing all night.
I have tried setting up a new similar routine, but it keeps playing through the night in the new routine as well.

We've heard feedback that turning off sleep sounds after 1 hour was insufficient for some of our users, so we made the decision to remove the end time. We're currently investigating ways to build a comparable solution and appreciate your patience.
Just a manual command stopped working at least a month ago.
You have to use a 3 stop process now.
1. Create a manual command "Play X"
2. Create a Delay Start (new item) for how long you want the music to play
3. Manual command to "STOP'.
Thanks for posting.

Looking forward to your responses.
christeljoy, I’m glad that worked for you. If you need further help, let me know.
nnavarrete, to listen to an unspecified ambient sound you can try the command "Play ambient noise". See this link for more information about it.
BTW everyone, I got my Pixel 7 Pro yesterday and the same thing happens on it. It is NOT a hardware issue as I think we all knew. It is their software. Something on the back end of the code for Sleep Sounds was changed.
Princess, I came here because my sleep timer is not working, just like everyone else. After reading the apparent lack of customer service on this issue, perhaps it is time to move to Alexia? You will loose a user if you do kit fix this issue. This is the only reason I have a smart speaker.
Up until recently we have had the same sleep routine set for 3 nest speakers in the house.
you would say 'hey google, goodnight' it would then read us the weather, set an alarm and then play thunderstorm sounds for exactly 1 Hr.
Now the thunderstorm sounds play all night or untill i turn off manually and then go to the kids rooms and do the same.
Does anyone know how to make it automatically turn off after 1 Hr again?
Hi @Josh23 ,
This is an issue some others have brought up and has also been escalated to the Nest team as well as Google Assistant. Seems like the latest updated made some changes to the sleep sounds.
Please also send feedback from your device. Just say "share feedback" and record your message about the sounds and the issue.
Thanks for reporting!
I’m having the same issue. I can’t figure out how to change it back to 1 hour. I’m thinking, after reading a few other issues and your post that it’s a Google change that needs to be fixed. ???
Thanks for visiting the Community.
We're sorry about this experience. This has been escalated and our team is currently working on it. Let's follow the main thread and wait for an update.
That is NOT a solution to the issue. Sleep sounds should work since it is a stock feature. THAT is what we are complaining about. Something GOOGLE created that used to work NO LONGER WORKS. FIX IT WE DO NOT WANT TO USE A WORKAROUND! DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
My apologies for the lack of updates here. The team is still investigating this issue and I haven't received any updates as yet. I'll continue checking in with the team and share any updates I receive. I understand this issue has been happening for quite some time and has been a rather frustrating experience. Thank you for your patience while our team works through this.
Please continue to send feedback on your devices by saying, "Hey Google, send feedback" followed by the keywords: "GHT3 bedtime sleep sound continuously plays after an hour." Visit this link for more steps on how to send feedback.
