I use recurring reminders on my Hub Display device.
Some reminders I set a year or more ago play as expected, as in "Gilly, it is time for bed"
Newer reminders I've set up play a chime and say "you have a reminder" -- so I have to make a trip to the kitchen to see what it is (it displays the text on the screen, but does not play it/verbally read it).
Can anyone help me set recurring reminders that play a message (such as "Gilly, time for bed" or "pick up kids") rather than just a chime/display?
Thanks! This is a maddening issue to try to resolve for a simple function that used to work!
Secondly, is there a central (well-designed) web interface where I can control these settings? Must I juggle control between the device itself and my phone "home app"?
I thought I'd deepen the mystery. It turns out I can see my reminders on Google Assistant on my phone (not a revelation for gurus on this forum, I'm sure). However, NONE of these reminders play verbally (they are all chime/display). The reminders that DO play verbally on my Home Hub display are NOT listed here. I don't know where they are. Could I have another account linked with different settings (somehow)?
Thanks for reaching out and for providing detailed information on your inquiry — these are of great help
There is a possibility that you are using the Family Bell for your announcement. Check the steps below on how to create another one.
To create a Family Bell on a Speaker or Smart Display:
For example, try saying, “Hey Google, create a Family Bell called Breakfast at 10 AM on Monday through Friday.”
Tip: When you create a Family Bell, you can customize the announcement with specific information your family appreciates.
Check this link for more information.
Hope this helps.
