Hi Steve

So can you link up a Google Home to TuneIn on iOS then or is it specific to Google phones?  Just curious as the bossy lady won't play ball for me if I say TuneIn!

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown

Ah, that works for me, but I think I know why.  I've linked up Tune In from my Pixel phone.  But you are right Jackie, it's not necessary to say On Tune In.

All the best

steve

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.
