Google tts only chiming

I’m trying to setup google tts. Got the configuration lines in there as needed
But when I run a script or anything tts, my google speaker will chime and HA will pop up a window booth left saying google tts just happened. But google won’t talk, it will only chime.
Anyone know why?

  - platform: google_translate

I am using it like this, i am using an input text to keep message as variable

service: tts.google_translate_say
  entity_id: media_player.bedroom_speaker
  message: '{{ states(''input_text.tts_input'') }}'

Double check that that you are following these requirements Text-to-Speech (TTS) - Home Assistant

I have had problems because i was using hostname and not the IP.

Thanks guys, you put me on the right path and I figured that tweaking my config and adding a base url https://external made it work.

  - platform: google_translate
    cache: true
    cache_dir: /tmp/tts
