Google Home isn’t executing commands from more than a few inches away


It’s hard to see in the video but when I say “OK Google” from the couch the 4 colored lights spin (waiting for a command) but then it doesn’t reply. It only works if I speak directly above it. My Google Home was working perfectly fine for over a week and then suddenly it just started having this problem. I logged out and back in, disconnected and reconnected wifi, rebooted, and factory reset but it still had the exact same problem.

  1. My Google Home does the same, the mic sucks. My Amazon echo is way better at picking up my voice at a longer distance
