    Unable to connect to Google home app. Keep getting error: "Couldn't update the setting. Check your connection."

    Attempted to delete both greeni app & Google home app. Removed Google home mini from my Google home account. Switched wifi on and off. Maybe it's an issue with the API?

    Same here. The lights connected to my wi-fi quickly and easily. The app controls the lights individually and in a group perfectly. Unfortunately, when I try to link it to my Google Home, I get the same error, "couldn't update the setting. Check your connection." Hopefully this is fixed soon.

     

    Something interesting: When I copy and paste the authorization link from my phone into my laptop browser and enter my Geeni credentials, it says something to the effect of "accounts have been linked", but then it tries to open the Home app and fails of course because it's on my laptop. With hope and optimism, I get back into my Google Home app on my phone only to find out that nothing has been linked and my Geeni account isn't connected. Maybe this can help move the troubleshooting process forward a bit.

    I just tried linking my Geeni account to my Google account. It sat for a long time after entering my credentials, which gave me hope, but in the end, it failed. I tried a second time, AND IT CONNECTED! My devices are finally added to my Google Home app. I'm cautiously going to say that the issue is fixed.

    I just attempted to connect them again and IT WORKED. If anyone at geeni got on the side thank you. Or maybe at Google. I sent feedback to them through the Google home app. Voice controls also working nicely too.

    I'm able to set up the Merkury smart bulbs on the Geeni app, but I cannot link them to Google Assistant.

    When I enter my Geeni credentials into Google Assistant to link the account, I get a 401 error ("Your client does not have permission to the requested URL /services/auth/handoffs/auth/complete?state=[blah blah encrypted string here]

    I keep trying to link Geeni to Google home but it keeps saying incorrect username or password. I have verified and tried over and over again but it will not connect.

    I don't even see the option to add control on my Google home app. It's been a while since this is not working and it's disappointing they were able to advertise, but not to check that it works

    I keep getting invalid username & password. Even went into Geeni app & changed password & it still won't work.

    FOLKS-

    If you are experiencing an issue signing in to LINK Geeni to Google Home, I stumbled upon the answer in my case:

    make sure you use GOOGLE CHROME as your sign in browser

    I was using Internet Explorer on android and would receive "account now linked" text with nothing happening until I switched my browser on a hunch that google driven operation would be more issue free using their applications.

     

    I hope this helps, and if so, GEENI posts this in their official instructions.

    I have been fighting with the Google Home connection for an hour. I could use the light options fine with the app but no voice control Google Home kept saying it was unavailable. I read your solution and switched my browser from Samsung Internet to Google Chrome and the light started working instantly with voice commands! Good stuff Thank you!

    Sad to find I just bought some of these devices and it just will not connect to Google Home. Just keeps endlessly telling me my login is wrong. It is not.

    Same issue with the "incorrect username/password" I can't figure it out. I know my username and password are correct...

    I have two sign ins one on the app that uses my mobile# and password and the one to sign in here that uses my email and a password. The mobile # and password is what you have to use to sign in through google home.

    I initially had it set up with my phone number, but after that didn't work I switched to email. Both options gave me the same username/password incorrect error.

    I haven't, it finally stopped with the password errors and acted as if it was going to link the account, but it never shows up with the devices or that it's even linked. I'm not sure why it won't connect anymore. It was connected once before and randomly dropped. I did notice a network error a few times and its telling me my network is unstable even though EVERYTHING is working fine in my house on the net besides linking the two accounts....

    I'm getting the same thing too. I've gone from invalid login to saying it's linking but never shows as linked. I'm going to keep try but right now over 50% of home devices are useless with Google Home.

    Hey, Support! Any thoughts?
