Can't connect to Google Assistant

I had no problems with my google assistant connection per this guide until recently when I lost my hability to “sync my devices”. I tried everything including deleting the project and creating a new one. Problem is that now I can’t connect the test app to google home getting an error message “can’t update definition. check connection” (free translation from portuguese).
In HA logs I get the following:

Can someone help?

Hi,

I seem to have the same issue at the moment. Which version of HA are you on? I’m on 0.109.6. I will try to upgrade to 0.111.4 to see if that makes a difference. Also, what have you already tried? I tried the following:

  • re-enable the draft test version in Google Actions. That worked in the past.
  • toggle the URL in the action section to recreate the preview (per documentation)
  • generate a new serve account JSON file

None of the above made a difference. The error I get is:

ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.components.google_assistant.smart_home] Error handling message {'inputs': [{'intent': 'action.devices.SYNC'}], 'requestId': ''}: {'errorCode': 'unknownError'}

Have you had any success in the meantime getting it to work?

Got exactly the same error as OP on (docker HA beta) version 0.112.1:

To me this looks like some device attribute not being handled properly by HA or something, but no clue on which/what that might be…

Same problem here.

Have anyone found a solution for this problem?

After one thousand tries I changed exposed by default to false and it started working

I have your own logs but I have not solved.
At this moment I don’t have access to devices in home assistant via google assistant.
I can’t connect the test app to google home getting an error message “can’t update definition. check connection”.

That confirms trouble with a device. I am suspecting of input_select (in my case).

I the lights. If I delete them from the configuration I don’t have errors but I don’t have more the lights in Google Assistant.

Same logs of here:

After Upgrade to 0.65.5 Google Assistant will not resync
