New Delhi: The Google Home app has reportedly crashed because it throws an error for many users when they add smart home devices. The error message reads “could not reach”.
The users cannot add new devices, so the process cannot be completed, 9To5Google reports. The Home app can control Google products, such as the most recent Nest Cam and Nest Thermostat, as well as thousands of third-party devices made by other companies.
Normally, adding devices requires linking an account to another service, but at the moment that procedure doesn’t seem to work.
Earlier this month, the tech giant reportedly made more user interface (UI) changes as the Home application ramps up preview testing for the major redesign, but it also appeared to break existing Assistant routines for some users.
The new page allows routines to control different functions of each device, unlike the drop-down menu settings on the previous page, where users could only adjust the on or off settings for each light or switch in their home.
