Google Assistant sleep timer feature not working on Home devices
Google Assistant has a knack for turning almost anything in your home into smart hardware. For example, you can play your favorite tunes on your Bluetooth speaker or brighten up your bedroom lighting with mood-appropriate shades. However, not all of these smart features work perfectly all the time. This was evidenced by an incident earlier last year when a Nest Hub owner was unable to set a timer on his smart display. A year later, the Google Assistant appears to exhibit somewhat similar glitches. This time it has to do with the ability to set Sleep his timer.
Several users have visited this Google Nest community page to express their disappointment with the Assistant’s broken sleep timer feature (via 9to5Google). This feature was introduced in his 2017, allowing customers to specify how long the music should stop playing. However, at present, many of the best Google Assistant smarts and his speakers seem unable to do this for unknown reasons.
Note that the voice assistant will still recognize appropriate commands for this action, but will eventually be unable to do the job. This means that even if you set a Sleep-Her timer, your bedtime playlist will still play.Our own Manuel Bonau can confirm that the sleep timer doesn’t work, even worse he turned on some music and asked the assistant to set his timer for him to sleep for 5 minutes , the assistant is instead real timer.
The issue has been widespread since it first appeared in December, and Google has been aware of it since. In response to complaints posted on the Nest community page, company representatives confirmed that the search giant is aware of the problem. Most recently, the Made by Google account replied to another Twitter user of hers, acknowledging the Sleep He timer issue and saying the company is working on a fix.
Unfortunately, the issue has not been resolved for over a month. However, if the user likes to listen to music before going to bed, there are some workarounds that can help them get a good night’s sleep. According to 9to5, it’s still possible to stop playing music after a certain amount of time by creating a Google Assistant routine and adding a delay command. I’m not killing useful features like features.
