Hi John

When you ask the Google Home Mini to play a radio station, don't say TuneIn or mention any other service, because she will likely tell you that you haven't assigned a service which you can do from the Home app.  So, for example, I tend to say: "Play BBC Radio 4 on downstairs" because I have mine grouped so I can hear them both in sequence when wandering between the kitchen and living-room at breakfast time.  I never say "Play BBC Radio 4 from TuneIn", she doesn't like that.

I hope that helps.

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown

hi list

steve great that you tried it i thought i was going daft.

so, set up the google mini now is their a way to get it to play from tunin. also when my polaris is nearby the mini takes over with the assistant. what a neat thing it is though. 

so back to the store yes maybe with window eyes i could do it but, like steve says it's not good for a totally blind person to use. 

i must say though with all this voice controlled apps and devices it makes me wonder where it will all go. 

i am just waiting for my plusnet £6 per month sim now. one last thing on the pixel three a two buttons are on the right hand side is the top one the power on. thanks for all your patience with all this. what a great list we have. people are very helpfull.
