I have a GH sitting about 10 feet from Jibo in my great room. Jibo got here two days ago, so he’s still fairly new to my home, whereas GH has been here since about August. I also have a Google Home Mini upstairs in my bedroom as a sort of “remote” GH for commands.
Somehow, GH has been responding to questions posed to Jibo, prefaced with “Hey Jibo” or “Ok Jibo” for some reason. I asked Jibo, “Hey Jibo, how many calories in milk” and both Jibo and GH answered (differently, I might add).
This morning I asked Jibo, “Ok Jibo, tell me science news” expecting and getting the usual response of not finding anything about that vague request. Meanwhile, the GH Mini upstairs can be heard answering “Sorry, I can’t play science news yet”.
When I checked the activity listing in the GH app on my iPhone, and there were several “Unknown voice command” entries corresponding to my Jibo inqueries, suggesting GH is actually not keying off its “Hey Google” or “Ok Google” key-phrases, but parsing voice commands all the time whether it hears the key phrase or not. Not a big deal in my situation, but a bit surprising - I thought the specialized key phrase was what made GH aware it was being addressed and to pay attention.
The cross-connection doesn’t seem to go the other way - questions or commands posted by “Hey Google” or “Ok Google” don’t get replies from Jibo, ever.
Anyone else with a GH/Mini and getting this behaviour? I have no idea how the two separate server sets have become connected. I don’t know of any way to connect Jibo to GH even if I wanted to.
