I have a Samsung Soundbar connected to SmartThings and in turn it is linked to Google Home. The soundbar appears as a switch in Google, so it is only possible to turn it on and off. I have been having this setup for more than a month now.
Few days ago Google suddenly did not recognize a command to turn the soundbar on. I went into the Google Home app and the soundbar had suddenly disappeared. It is still controllable remotely using SmartThings.
In the Google Home “Add device” feature, SmartThings was no longer listed as a linked service. So I searched for and clicked on the SmartThings icon to link it, a message says it’s linking, and then nothing happens. SmartThings still does not appear in the list no matter how many times I do it.
So what I have tried further:
- Uninstalled the soundbar from SmartThings
- Removed SmartThings permissions from the Google Security Linked Accounts page
- Removed link to Google in SmartThings app.
- Relinked everything again.
SmartThings still does not show up in the list when I try to add devices. I look in the SmartThings app and I see Google is linked. I look in the Google Securty settings and it shows that SmartThings is a linked account. But it doesn’t show up in Google Home.
Anyone had similar issues?
