Snooze/Slumber time not working anymore

Community Member

Dear all,

first of all, sorry if the term "snooze / slumber" is not a correct one... 🙂

When I go to sleep, I use(d) to say "Hey Google, play radio station x on Tune In and stop after 10 minutes". 

Until a month (maybe little more) this worked all the time, so the music stopped after 10 minutes. 

Unfortunately, this is not the case anymore... 😞

Eventough, the google assistant does answer by saying "playing radio station x and device will stop playing after 10 minutes". 

Any idea what could have changed? 
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi @DavyC 

Unfortunately timer delays such as this stopped working on all google nest devices weeks ago, possibly after the recent firmware update. It has been reported hundreds of times, many, many threads about it, and Google say they are aware and a fix is awaited in the future at some date. As to when, nobody knows.

The nearest thing that can be done is not a solution so not perfect but a kind of temporary workaround as follows.

Create a Routine on the Google Home app with a single action command of 'Stop Playing'. Additionally create a starter on the routine for when you want the routine to action of a set time of day, e.g. for instance at 23:00 or of course whatever time would be more suitable. Then the music or sleep sounds will stop when the routine activates at that set time every day or night. Not perfect but the best you can do until this very annoying bug is fixed.

Hi folks,


@Kadven, thanks for the help.


@DavyC, our team is aware about timers/sleep timers that aren’t working for turning off music at the specified time and are still working on a fix.

For news and updates about sleep timers, keep an eye on the recommended answer on the main thread. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to start a new one for I will be locking this thread after 24 hours.
