The Google Home are Google's smart speakers. If you detect any other failure in your Google Home such as not connecting to the WiFi network, not responding when we say “Ok Google” or not answering to our requests it may be due to the latest firmware update of the speaker.
Smart speakers, like most Internet-connected devices, are updated from time to time. These updates are intended to make improvementsin the product, although it is not always available.
An example of this is Windows updates, which almost cause more problems than they fix errors, so we should not worry about it since it is a fact that happens with some frequency.
If our Google Home shows the symptoms mentioned above, it is very likely that you are among those affected. Fortunately, this problem has easy solution since we would only have to factory reset the speaker. This process can be done through the “Home” app by following these steps:
- We open the app “ Home”.
- We enter the affected speaker which will continue to be in the list of our speakers, but without connection.
Click on the gear icon located in the upper right part
- Click at the bottom where it says “ Remove device”.
The device will then start to factory reset and when it's done, it will start talking to us and guide us through the process of relinking it to our Google account
As we can see, the process is simple, although if we have a Google Home we don't have to worry if it works properly, since This update has reached those users who are in the Google Home beta program, precisely so that this type of failure does not occur in the final version of the new firmware.
