TuneIn stopped working on Google Home

Since mid-september, Google Nest Mini no longer plays any radio station from TuneIn. It worked for the last few months, but when I ask to play my radio station now, Google replies that it is playing the station from TuneIn. I hear some advertisement, and then nothing. I have no issue playing the same station on Apple Home Pod mini via TuneIn. I saw some comments to use Chrome and Cast from TuneIn, but I don't have computers close by when I want to hear the radio. I have 3 Google Nest Mini. Time to ask for a refund?

Success for 2 days in a row. I guess a solution was provided by Google in an update. I read that the problem was acknowledged in Sept. Would be nice to get a bit more transparency and update from Google.

I had the same issue a bit back.  Tunein was broken for a while.  Tunein worked on it and it should be working now.  I'm playing my TuneIn station right now (Magic 99.5).  The way you can test it is to try a station from another streamer, like Iheart (like Iheart 80s or the TuneIn station I just mentioned).  If either plays, something is up with that station on TuneIn.

Thanks. I thought so as well, but TuneIn for the same station always works on my Apple Home Pod. I try every day and « Send Feedback » to Google. This morning, it worked, but will continue to monitor as it happened in the past where it would work about 1 day per week or so.

Sorry you have to go through that.  Mine has been fine since TuneIn fixed whatever was up.  Good luck!
