Google Home Coming to Canada in Early Summer


"Most users say the issues started popping up in the last day or two and today Google Home has a almost 100% failure rate", the report said.

When some users try to activate their devices with the usual, "Okay, Google" command, Google Home will respond with, "Hmm, something went wrong". Another response is more straightforward, saying, "There was a glitch". In fact, there may be no need to even check if you are affected, as according to Android Police, "Google Home has a almost 100 percent failure rate".

In Canada, Google Home is priced at $179 CAD, which is similar to the device's $129 US pricing after currency conversion.

The issue only appears to affect Google's Home speaker, because the company's Assistant is working as normal on smartphones and other devices running he Assistant app.

The virtual assistant is spitting out errors instead of controlling smart home devices and answering questions. It also features swappable base accent colors, and can work with Chromecast Audio and Cast-enabled speaker devices for whole-home synchronized audio streaming.

This issue has been dominating discussions on Twitter and Google's product forum, suggesting it to be a fairly widespread outage.
