My google home has an orange blinking light on the back that occasionally turns white. Nothing Happens when I try to reconnect. I can not find/connect the device.  It doesent react when I say hey Google. There are no lights on the top. I have tried rebooting the device. I have tried other outlets to make sure the power is on. It is still not responding. Because I can't find it I can't set it up again  doesn’t even show up. It has worked for me before. What do I do?

Hi everyone!

I now know what the problem is.
My Google home Mini gen1 didn't respond to my "turn on the light" command when I came home today. Since I knew it's in the preview program I did a factory reset and connected to my 5 ghz wifi. Google home couldn't configure the device so i tried again but on the 2.4 ghz wifi and then it worked.
But the original problem was a firmware update from the preview program. When i did a factory reset the device was not in the preview anymore and was working fine.
It also found my voice recognition data and was easily finished with the setup.
I will not let it be in the preview program again.
It's my own fault that it didn't work. If I was in stable release I wouldn't have any problems.
However I'm a little bit disappointed that Sweden still hasn't got the same features as in English. I would like to come home and say " Hey Google turn on all lights and play Faithfully with Journey in the livingroom" now this has to be said in two separate commands.
A pro tip to you Google: And is spelled "och" in Swedish, that's the only difference ;)
