Devices affected by the problem have consequentially lost their normal functions.

Does your Google Home not work?

A Google glitch has left users across the globe frustrated, especially due to a lack of information and updates from the multinational technology company.

But again, unplugging and replugging the device seems to fix the problem, following Google's fix. And, if they attempt to reset the speaker, the Homes sometimes can not reboot at all.

@madebygoogle Since today when i say OK GOOGLE, home replies me with "Google home has not setup yet".

Twitter is now swamped with outraged users hashtagging #Chromecast left, right and center.

We've confirmed this here ourselves with our own Google Home Mini.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Pro leaked packing Snapdragon 710 SoC
For some perspective, the Redmi 6 Pro is the natural successor to the Redmi 4 Prime , a device that was released back in 2016. The Mi Pad 4 packs a 6000mAh capacity battery , which is actually slightly smaller when compared to its predecessor .

Google was inundated with complaints from people about the issue in New Zealand, Spain, Ireland, India and Argentina. Google said it had "received reports from users globally" and that through Wednesday their "phone support [was] experiencing an unusually high call volume".

Problems with Google Home? It has since announced the availability of the fix, but hasn't yet offered any reason for the issues.

Users of the Chromecast Product Forum noticed the outage early on Wednesday morning (US time) when the Chromecast icon disappeared from streaming applications like Netflix, HBO and YouTube.

Another said: "Can we get some info on what's going on?"

To get it back up and running, users must reboot their device - which appears to be working for many. We will update this post when Google finds a solution to the problems affecting Google Homes and Chromecasts.

Hopefully, Google delivers a fix for these problems soon, as these issues obviously render Home and Chromecast hardware useless.
