Google Assistant 'turn on' vs open change

Has anyone noticed that you can no longer say, “open the office drapes.” Now you have to say, “turn on the office drapes.”

Second, if I omit “the” sometimes Google assistant says that the device is not set up. It was this way for a week but when I just tested it now, omitting “the” doesn’t make a difference anymore.

Anyone else experience this behavior off and on?

I had the same issue for my garage, I just made a routine for when I say “open the garage” the assistant will fire the command Garage On.
That was the easiest way for me.

Thanks @sleeepy2 that’s a good solution. I didn’t think of it and I only have four devices that I would like that logical behavior.
