Hey All.
Not really sure where to post this as it needs the attention of the Google developers.

Only a minor bug, however from the Assistant SDK (have only tested the service) you can send a text command to start casting your Nest camera by saying "Show [camera] on [chromecast]."
The problem is that the stop commands don't work "Stop [chromecast]" as they're not supported.

This means that your TV is stuck with streaming your Nest camera with no way to turn it off other than using the official Assistant. This bug also means the Nest camera gets stuck on the Home Hub, and the only way to stop it is to talk or interact directly with the device.

Is it possible to get Actions to respond on different devices?
For example, ask Assistant on my phone to do X and have it respond on my Lounge home?

The Google Assistant SDK was updated in December to allow for text commands.

Is it possible to use SSML commands as a broadcast? I know Google do this for some of their predefined broadcast commands, however I'd like to implement a few of my own with some sounds from their sound library here:

Get out of the shower to find +Google​ thinks I'm listening to Such a Feeling by Bizzare Inc.

I've never heard of this song, but if it sounds like running water, extractor fans and a shower pump it must be pretty horrendous

Hopefully someone can help.

My dad is trying to play an episode that plays fine on my devices, but it doesn't work on his phone and the TV throws a transcoding error.

I've taken a look in the Plex logs and can just see:

Streaming Resource: Terminated session 058B8CE0:f5abc03ebb6f37eb-com-plexapp-android with reason Conversion failed. The transcoder crashed or failed to start up.

I think its related to profiles, as I just tried it on his profile on my phone. Failed.
My phone, my profile. Works

Any suggestions?

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with Nougat?!

All of a sudden my phone will spring to life and send me all the notifications it should have sent me previously.

At the moment, it seems to be every calendar notification since May...
