Google is Rolling Out a Fix For The Chromecast Outage

One thing's clear: this is bound to be frustrating if you rely heavily on Google's ecosystem to power your smart home.

Google told TechCrunch "we're aware of an issue affecting some Google Home and Chromecast users". Google, however, refused to confirm the cause of the outage and whether or not it was associated with a broken software patch.

But again, unplugging and replugging the device seems to fix the problem, following Google's fix.

Update: Google is now rolling out a fix that should fix the problems affecting Google Homes and Chromecasts.

People reported that they could not get anything to stream on Chromecast or use Chromecast to connect to other devices.

As for Chromecast, that's stopped supporting "casting" from apps to the TV adapter.

Twitter is now swamped with outraged users hashtagging #Chromecast left, right and center. If you would like an immediate fix please follow the directions to reboot your device.

By 20:46 last night, Google confirmed the reports were a result of a glitch on its side, and that it was working on it. While the Google G Suite - including services like Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Drive - gets a status dashboard to let users know if there's a problem that the company is working on, there's no equivalent for its more entertainment- and lifestyle-focused products. "We are really sorry for the inconvenience and are taking steps to prevent this issue from happening in the future".
