Google Home speakers suffer a 'glitch'

Google Home speakers suffered a "glitch" yesterday (06.28.18).

The multinational technology company, which specializes in Internet-related services and products, was left red faced this week when the wireless gadget stopped working temporarily and kept responding to user queries with: "There was a glitch" or "sorry, something went wrong" before telling them to "try again later."

A spokesperson for the firm said via Twitter that there had been an issue with the speak and some of the TV-streaming Chromecast dongles had also been affected.

The malfunction is still ongoing but Google have confirmed they have a "fix" ready and some users may be able to rectify the problem themselves by rebooting it.

However, users took to their social networking sites to vent about the hassle - with some people claiming their alarms didn't go off in time, making them late for work.

One user said: "@Google You guys aren't going to say anything about the fact the your Google Homes weren't working this morning and caused my boyfriend to be late to work because the alarm didn't go off? Just gonna act like there was no issue?"

Another added: "Great, now we'll have to revert back to looking out the window to see if it's raining outside or turning on the TV with the remote. What's this world come to... #GoogleHome #FirstWorldProblems (sic)"
