Can we get a real update to our Google Home/Assistant and Hue issues?
Now, here's the thing: I have an older (round) Phillips Hue Bridge, which, incidentally, isn't supported by Amazon Echo. My guess is that most of the posters on this thread are using the new (square ) bridge. I'm wondering if there are differences in the bridge versions that could be part of the problem. That said, it doesn't seem like Google Home/Assistant actually talks to the bridge - it's all through Hue public API. Notice that in setup, you don't actually push the button on the bridge, which is sort of a hacky security access control feature of the bridge. In Google's case, you authorize your Google account with MeetHue - that means that interactions with our Hue bridge from Pixel/Home devices hit Hue API first, and then MeetHue updates the bridge the next time the bridge polls for changes. That's what I think, at least. I don't think the local Bridge API implements any other security model than the button press, so I think the issue likely lies with MeetHue's public API. FTR, Amazon Echo uses the local Bridge API, which really is the way to go IYAM.
something is not waking up on Phillips' end.
