Google Assistant stopped working on 28th February 2023. At that time, the search engine giant was unable to determine the cause of the problem. However, a few days later, the Pixel manufacturer found a solution to the problem. Today, Google Assistant users say that they are able to control smart home devices again.
What exactly is happening? Why did Google Assistant stop working?
If you have been trying to use Google Assistant this Tuesday, you may have noticed that the app has completely forgotten how to control smart home devices. For example, users reported that Google Assistant stopped working when they tried to activate lights or turn on the TV. The search giant’s virtual assistant uses voice to control various devices in our homes.
The Virtual Assistant stopped working unexpectedly because users were unable to make the virtual Assistant understand their guidelines. To make a long story short, right now, if you say, “Hey, Google, turn on the lights,” the software will carry out the given order. However, if you gave this command yesterday, the possible response is “Sorry, I don’t understand” or “Sorry, I didn’t understand.”
