Informed of that fact, Google's Twitter team has conceded that it's working on the issue. Google has not given a reason why these devices went down, only apologising for the service problems and identifying a fix for the issues.
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. It means that Google Home was down since 6:05 am EDT today, and some users are reporting that their devices started working again late this afternoon. It hasn't revealed any more information about the cause of this outage and precisely how many users have been impacted by it.
Coutinho-Paulinho connection carries Brazil into the last 16
But Brazil broke swiftly from the ensuing corner and Coutinho played in Neymar who was denied again by Stojkovic. Brazil finished first in Group E and will next face Mexico in the round of 16 on Monday in Samara.
Google would not confirm if the issue was related to a broken software patch, though that's being reported on Twitter.
The smart speakers house the artificial intelligence-powered Google Assistant which responds to voice commands and requests. Those who wanted to get the fix sooner could manually reboot their devices, said Google. And, if they attempt to reset the speaker, the Homes sometimes can not reboot at all.
Update: Google has a fix ready, and has promised to automatically deploy it within six hours (as of roughly 6PM Eastern). "I was unaware there was an issue and factory reset my Google home and it still isn't working". The Google Home Help Forums are filled with similar complaints about the outage, also from users worldwide.
