A lot of people who use Google Assistant in their homes (not totally utterly frustrated, not that they’ve run out of it by now) have Nest Hubs, Nest Minis, or other I often fall asleep faster by playing music on my Assistant-enabled device. Put on your favorite lo-fi or relaxing music as opposed to the sound of the rain and you’ll be nodding off to the next morning.
Little to mention, but Google seems to have removed the ability to do this. That’s right – without updating the changelog or anything else to notify users relying on the feature, we removed the “end time” that stops playing music after the audio stops being conscious.
In a reply to a tweet from Made by Google, the company confirmed that, based on the feedback it received, most users felt that the one-hour end time was not enough, so they could simply increase the time or add an hour. Instead of going beyond and offering different options, we’ve removed the functionality. Overall.
As you can see, a user named Paul Huges who was in direct communication with Made by Google about this issue was not happy with this. My guess is that if Google allows users to operate for more than an hour at the end of the music, it will overload the servers too much. It may sound silly, but given all the services and server space Google uses for all of its users, it needs to decide where to cut back to keep everything running fine. There will be These things add up, I’m sure.
Still, it’s strange how a company can cut and trim where they want without telling anyone. Do what Google wants. This makes it even clearer. According to 9to5Google, this is his first acknowledgment of his existence, although he hasn’t been around in over a month.
