I have one light that has worked for years. Today it stopped responding to my6 voice command. The repone I get is " Sorry I don't understand " when i ask "hey google turn the light on " as I have done for years. I can use my Home app on the phone to turn the lights on off manually.
This is NOT happening to us, but these 2 threads seem related:
Same here. Google must have updated their server software without testing basic functionality.
This happened this morning after 3 am pst.
Verbal commands to turn on or off devices fail.
Verbal commands to start routines work.
Manual commands via Google home app works too.
I don't understand how software can be updated without testing basic functionality. When a verbal "turn on the kitchen lights" suddenly stops working, it is clear that the software release process at Google is seriously broken.
Same here, everyone stop rebooting. The home app still has all devices linked and controllable by the app. The speakers and display still answer questions and tell time etc. So clearly a software issue from Google related to controlling linked home app devices by voice control via your Google home speakers and display. Google lack of response to acknowledge the issue is a sign google is uncaring to us that bought these devices. Alexa still controls my devices but google currently not.
