The virtual assistant is spitting out errors instead of controlling smart home devices and answering questions. “According to multiple online complaints, there’s a Google Home outage affecting a significant portion of users,” said Android Police, a technology website.
To know if your ‘Home’ device is affected, users need to use a trigger phrase. The device will respond with “Hmm, something went wrong. Try again in a few seconds,” or “There was a glitch. Try again in a few seconds.”
“Most users say the issues started popping up in the last day or two and today Google Home has a nearly 100 percent failure rate,” said the report. However the other devices with Google Assistant are working fine.
