 I’m trying to set up my Google home mini with my iPhone phone number but when I go to put in the verification code that was sent to me via SMS ,it says “something went wrong please try again” when I hit verify. I have tried restarting the Google home and setting up from scratch but nothing seems to be working and I’m getting frustrated.

 I’m having the same issue, it happened on my iPhone 8+ so I tried on my iPad and I’m getting the same issue there.  I then tried it on an android phone that I have, and it worked. Looks like the issue might be isolated to the iOS version of the app. At least for me.

  1. Do you have the latest version of the Google Home appGoogle Home app
  2. Google Home firmware is 1.36.141215 or higher. Here's how to check your firmware version.
  3. Your Google Account is linked to Google Home.
  4. Are you located in U.S, UK or Canada.
    Note: Continental U.S, Hawaii and Alaska only. US territories are not currently supported.
  5. Is your Google Assistant language set to English US, English UK, Canadian English, or French Canadian?
  6. Does your contact on Google Contacts have an area code?

Same here, it used to work, doesn’t anymore from iPad or iPhone.

It gives me a verification number, which is the same every time, which I thought was unusual.

But when entering that number and pressing next to actually verify it, you get the error.

Yeah this is happening for me on every iOS app at the moment. Literally can't login to anything using Google. They've fucked something up for sure.

Its broken on both my Ipad and Pixel 3. I can't add any additional account services at all right now. Google, get your heads out of your asses.
