Scheduled Routines Not Starting

For as long as I have had my Google Nest, my routine don't activate at the schedules time. The only exception for this is the 'Workday' routine, which works perfectly without fail. But when I try and create another routine, they only start with the voice trigger, not the time. What the fix for this?

Same problem here, my good morning routine worked for months, then  just quite, and it will not start again

I am having this same issue.

I use many Routines throughout the day that start with my Google Assistant speaking through a Google mini at a certain scheduled time. A few weeks ago all of my routines stopped working.

 

I can turn pandora on through my phone to the speaker using the Google app. I can trigger the routine on my phone. But the routine will not trigger on the speaker with just day and time.

 

Please help.

Same here. I have many scheduled routines, but none of them works.

Some triggers correctly, and notification appears on my devices. But then the outcome of the actions within the routine is nothing. E.g. I have a routine for the vacuuming of the house. Triggering it manually starts the vaccum bot. When routine is triggered by day/time schedule instead the vacuuming does not start at all.

Same for thermostats / lamps etc. Day/time scheduling is not working. It is time to fix it.

This is exactly what is happening to me as well

Is there any update about the possible cause or a recommended fix for this?

Hey all,

 

I am sorry for the late reply. I would be more than happy to help out and ensure everyone is good to go. I did find a helpful article with more details on how to set up and manage routines. Please let me know if that helps out, or if you have any questions from here.

 

Best regards,

Jake

Thank you for the reply, however the article did not provide any insight for this problem that I could find. I have many routines that have been working for months- the are created and managed correctly. They suddenly stopped working.

Forgot to come back to this one -

 
In my case I ended up finding out that it was selecting the wrong speaker. I previously had to remove my nest mini from my home account and set it up again. Rather than completely removing it, I now have two options for which speaker I want use, with it automatically selecting the old "Bedroom speaker". I changed the name of the speaker, and then I could clearly see which is current version and which is the old, set it to the new one - and now my routines work.
 
Hope this works for other people 

I should add that this is for routines where I have selected it's an all day routine, and doesn't require a voice command at all. Routines which require a voice command and/or time, still don't work at the specified time
