    Local api changing for Google home/Chromecast devices

    Hi spud,

    Are you aware of this upcoming change to gh and Chromecast devices regarding local control?

    No I don't think this error has anything to do with the change described in the link from OP

    This error means the plugin cannot access which it needs if you use the google voice for text to speech.
    So make sure you don't have a firewall or something blocking access to this url, and that it is accessible from your HS machine.
