Relaxing sounds won't stop: "Nothing is playing right now"
1
My wife and I have a google home mini in our bedroom, and often ask it to play relaxing sounds for us to sleep to. For example, we might say "Hey google, play the sounds of the forest."

Recently, though, it hasn't been allowing me to stop the sounds using voice commands. Up until recently, I could say "Hey google, Stop" or "hey Google, stop the music", and the sounds would stop. Now, those commands have google respond "Nothing is playing right now".

I am able to go into the app, and go to my speaker, and am able to select "stop casting" and the msic stops.

I also tested it with another speaker in another room, and got similar issues. I asked google to "play relaxing sounds" and got some sounds playing. I then tried to stop the sounds using a few commands, and nothing worked. I tried "stop casting", "pause casting" and "stop relaxing sounds" and all gave the response "Nothing is playing right now".

Any ideas? I'd like to get back my voice commands for this function.

I just came here to look for help for the same issue! I hope someone has some answers because it's driving me crazy having to open the app to make it stop.

I have the same issue, trying to stop / pause news playing.  It always responded "nothing is playing right now". I have to plug off the power cable to make it stop.  How to fix this bug? I am looking for the same solution.

I am having the same issue. It plays a relaxing sound and in the morning it says it's not casting anything. Very frustrating. If I open the app on my phone it clearly shows it casting and from there I can turn it off but when I tell it to stop it now says it's not playing anything.

I'm having the same issue. Home hub starts playing "relaxing sounds" a various times throughout the day/night. If I tell it to stop it will for a couple of hours but then start back up again.
