"Hmm, something went wrong".

"There was a glitch, try again in a few seconds", users speakers responded when asked a question.

A few hours after the first post on the official Twitter account, Google reassured users by informing them of the automatic rollout of the fix. But don't worry, there's a fix rolling out.

While many users are now reporting that their Google Home is working properly, the outage map shows problems still exist along both coasts in the USA, the Northeast, Northwest, Florida and parts of Texas.

Users in Google's home state of California started complaining that their Google Home, Mini, and Chromecast devices were not working properly around midnight Pacific Time on Tuesday, and the issue cropped up in every country in which the Google Home devices are sold.

Google admitted today that there are issues with Google Chromecasts and Google Home smart speakers.

So if you are having issues with your Google Home, Home Mini, Home Max, or Chromecast devices, you are not alone.

It was pretty obvious if any of your devices were suffering from the problem.

People reported being unable to stream on Chromecast, or use Chromecast to connect to other devices.

It wasn't only Slack that went AWOL yesterday (27 June), as Google Home smart speakers and Chromecast devices suffered a massive outage that went on for approximately 12 hours.

Smart speakers have become increasingly popular in the last three years, driven by the launch of Google Home and its rival the Amazon Echo, which is powered by Amazon's own virtual assistant Alexa.

The voice activated Google Home also required an update. "We're investigating the issue and working on a solution".

"If you would like an immediate fix please follow the directions to reboot your device".
