Google Home updated?
Quick question that's been bugging me a bit.
Did Google push an update that has changed the way TCMD operates? I've noticed the voice from TCMD has changed a bit. Additionally, "Hey Google, ask TriggerCMD run X" with a the voice reply set to "(space)" now says "Okay, let's get TriggerCMD" followed by the bing bong sound.
I've set up about a hundred(+) shortcuts using "ask TriggerCMD run X" which used to just give the bing bong sound without Google talking to me.
Okay, let's get TriggerCMD
@username6, I didn't do anything to add "Okay, let's get TriggerCMD" so apparently Google did that. I did some research and it seems there's no way to turn it off. I'm hoping to create a Google Assistant version of this Alexa skill, which wil likely solve this.
Thanks a lot for the reply.
It's beyond irritating lol.
@username6 I hear ya! It annoys me too. I use to say "hey google, kitchen light on" and hear nothing but the TriggerCMD reply I had set up of "Boom."
I can't figure out what the added dialog is doing for Google or why it was considered an upgrade to the prior way it was experienced?
@tim-s Strange decision for sure.
Out of curiosity, why are you using TCMD to control lighting? Assuming you have a Z-Wave enabled device with Google Assistant compatibility?
@username6 Ever hear of X10? I jumped in back in 2010. Long story short, it is basically RF switches in a way via powerline... Old tech that, thanks to TriggerCMD, can trigger the usb RF transmitter plugged into my Windows PC via Google Assistant. I bought a Google Home about 1 1/2 yrs ago and stumbled across a Youtube demonstration of how to get this old tech working with Google Assistant for the cost of only $10 per year to TriggerCMD. I've been very happy with the result and not having to buy 20 outlets and switches to incorporate them on a more modern tech platform. And all my old RF remotes still work also.
@russ Sorry for the bump, time flies.
Just wondering if you ever found a workaround for this?
@username6, unfortunately there's nothing I can do about that "Okay, let's get TriggerCMD" prefix. I don't add that - Google does, and they don't give me the option to turn it off.
@russ Jeeze 20 days ago, sorry for my late reply.
Thanks for getting back to me.
Unfortunate, it's driving me nuts haha.
Keep up the great work
