The android version of the Home App does not let me tap to select light color where the iOS version does. Both my Android and my iPhone are running the latest version of their respective home apps. Google seems to  be supporting their competitor's OS better than their own here...

I'm not very sure, but I guess I changed the color of my led stripe some weeks ago with Google home on Android... now the button disappeared... I think it's a bug

I had a routine programmed that has to change the light to white. It worked good before but now when i let the google home run the routine it says the option is not avaible for this device. Strange because i did not change anything on this routine and the other routines are working fine with other colors. Looks like there are some bugs with color change in the new update.

Is this with Philips Hue?
What kind of bulbs do you have?

My Philips Hues on Android are fully controllable from my Home App.

@Grampy360: I see your post was a while back, are you still experiencing this issue? If so, which brand of smart light bulbs are you using? For Philips Hue ones I'm seeing the same interface in both the Android and iOS Google Home apps. 
@Taz Taz: is this working now? Which brand of smart light bulbs are you using?

The button to change the color keeps missing on Android. As I said, some weeks ago it was there, and now I can still change the color through voice commands.
I'm controlling a MQTT led stripe controller through Home Assistant.
