Home assistant cloud and google home not linking?

I have added home assistant cloud to my configuration (hass 0.70.1) and the configuration page shows a connection status of “Connected”.

I then try to activate the home assistant from the Google Home app (select Home control and then hass.io) and I get the screen that says “Home Assistant” and a button to “Allow Access”. I press the allow access button and immediately go back to the “manage accounts” screen, but hass.io isn’t listed in the linked services.

Anyone have ideas on what I’m doing wrong and/or how to debug this?

Thank you.
