Google is Rolling Out a Fix For The Chromecast Outage

Affected Google Home and Home Minis respond with "Your Google Home is not set up yet" immediately after saying "Hey, Google" or "Ok, Google" whereas Chromecasts aren't showing up as devices you can cast to within your favorite apps. A Google spokesperson confirmed to TechCrunch that there's an issue affecting "some" of its customers of these platforms, and it's now investigating the issue and working on a solution. That's the response that Google smart speaker users around the world heard Wednesday when they asked their devices to play music, get the weather or even respond to its "Hey, Google " prompt. Now Google says they are rolling out a fix but it could take up to 6 hours.

People reported being unable to stream on Chromecast, or use Chromecast to connect to other devices. Performing a reboot of the affected device should solve any problems. If you're also receiving this specific error message, don't bother resetting the speaker like I did because it won't fix anything.

"OK Google, start working again".

Erdogan won the Turkish election after an unequal battle, monitors say
Turkey will hold local elections in March 2019, which presents an opportunity for the opposition to reconstitute itself. More than 110,000 government workers have also been dismissed under a state of emergency after the coup.

Google is acknowledging the issue, confirming the problems to TechCrunch, but isn't getting specific at this stage.

While many users are now reporting that their Google Home is working properly, the outage map shows problems still exist along both coasts in the US, the Northeast, Northwest, Florida and parts of Texas. Google added that users would need to reboot their device to get "back up and running", pointing users to a help page on how to reboot their Google Home device.

Are you having any issues with your Google gadgets? "We are really sorry for the inconvenience and are taking steps to prevent this issue from happening in the future".
