  • Hands Free Google Assistant for Raspberry Pi

    Thanks for that info. That's what I figured. Hopefully it will get added. Still a great little project none the less. I can now easily get weather and driving times, including just asking "How long to get to work today." That will be handy in the morning.

    I just set mine up using VNC and it worked out great!

    Hands Free Google Assistant for Raspberry Pi

    Great tutorial, thanks so much. Very easy to follow. I had a few original Pi's laying around but ordered a 3 just to get the best performance. I also used VNC to help get it set up so I didn't have to take over the TV from my wife.One thing I'm running into is playing music and video. I tell it "Play <artist> videos on my TV" it says it's playing a video playlist on <my google chrome name> device, but then says "Sorry, something went wrong. When you're ready give it another try."

But I can't find where in the app to set the default music app. For some reason, there is no Music option in the menu on my phone. I even chatted with a google rep online for help and they said it should be there. They wanted me to factory reset my google Home and set it up again (hehehe) so I just said I had to go.Has anyone else gotten videos and music working?
