Google is Rolling Out a Fix For The Chromecast Outage

After being down most of the day some Google Home smart speakers are working again

At some point last night, Google Home and Chromecast units across this fine Earth stopped working.

A report in the technology website TechCrunch said the company had confirmed the outage, but had given no information about what had caused it or how many customers were affected.

One Twitter user claimed then issue is down a failed update pertaining to location privacy, but Google has not confirmed that.

"We're aware of an issue affecting some Google Home and Chromecast users".

Users in Google's home state of California started complaining that their Google Home, Mini, and Chromecast devices were not working properly around midnight Pacific Time on Tuesday, and the issue cropped up in every country in which the Google Home devices are sold. If you're also receiving this specific error message, don't bother resetting the speaker like I did because it won't fix anything. "Download Google Home app".

The body was finally found at Illickal bridge in Kottayam Lake, 20-km away from his house, at 0830 hrs on Sunday. A bachelor, he lives with his parents and works for the food-processing company, Choice Foods.

Saying "Ok Google" to a Google Home speaker, for instance, gets the response that "there was a glitch, try again in a few seconds".

Users have taken to social media to vent their frustration with some reporting that they could not stream on Chromecast or use it to connect to other devices.

Affected users have been tweeting at Google for most of the afternoon so it appears the issue is significant enough to sufficiently trouble Google's engineers.

A Google glitch has left users across the globe frustrated. "We are really sorry for the inconvenience and are taking steps to prevent this issue from happening in the future". If your Chromecast is not working this today no worries, it is not you, but Google's backend servers are down right now.
