Polk Assist as part of Google Home speaker group

Hi All,

I have just received my Polk Assist smart Speaker. All is good as far as being a part of my Google Home "network" which consists of 3 Google nest Minis, one Chromecast, and a Google nest hub. The Polk controls my lights perfectly, so all is good there, and I appear to have successfully added the Polk to my speaker group. However, music refuses to play on the Polk when I cast the music to my "all speakers" group.

I am initiating the playing of the music via the Google Hub and music plays on all of the Nest Minis, the Hub and my Chromecast, just not the Polk.

Any suggestions?

Cheers,

Charles

    Thanks for that. It is annoying me very much.

    This problem is something Polk's engineers are aware of, nothing is wrong with your particular unit. They are checking with the designers to see if there is a workaround, if they discover something I will certainly let you know.
    I'm sorry I don't have better news for you.

    Thank You for letting me know. it does rather make my purchase, if not *completely* useless in my home, certainly of much less use than I had hoped.

    Thanks for the insight, Champ, you're a credit to the forum.

    Now how about you do something useful like go and play in the traffic?
