Been using the white noise ambient sound to help sleep and noticed last night the sound had been changed. Sounds like a new file and it's not only quieter the audio loop is a lot shorter, with a sudden drop off after about 30 minutes before it loops again (the previous one was about an hour long and started again much faster). Is there a way to restore to the older sound file?

Whew - I thought I was losing my mind!
We noticed the same thing, which resulted in my kid asking to use the old white noise generator we had prior to switching over to the Nest Hub a couple years ago.
The new "white noise" does have a better looping transition than the original one, but.....
Talking about feeling crazy. I thought I had clogged ears or something. I even tired a few different devices in my home before we found out it was an upgrade from Google. My toddler has noticed the sound change and now wakes during the night. Please revert back to the original noise. It was so much nicer.
No idea how to use the old sound (tried a lot last night) but the white noise last night was terrible. it only went for 10 min loop and so heard it dropping in and out constantly. Notice today it's better, still 10 but have looped it properly so you don't have the silencein transition. Its very quite compared still.
Yes, same here!!! My toddler was super sensitive to this change.. I play the same white noise for him to sleep since he was born! Now he is having trouble falling asleep e waking up several times at night and not soothing himself 😭 And I can't find the old white noise elsewhere. I just ask please Google, do something about it! We are sleep deprived enough!
Just noticed this tonight. I'm really annoyed. I've been using the white noise for almost 2 years now. Sounds terrible. I also would play one of it's lullaby songs on my phone and that's changed too. My daughter and I would sing the song together and now it just goes right to the sound and no more vocals. She was really upset and tbh so am I. Is it not 1hr long and 12hrs anymore?
How do we complain to someone directly? I have used this white noise sound since my son was born two years ago. You can imagine the mess it's creating tonight at bedtime. Never mind the awful sound, it also doesn't block out any of the other noises in the house, which is a nightmare with a newborn. Please please put this back to how it was.
