  1. I was able to use a neat feature of Google Home Routines called "Say Something". When the Routine runs is says a personalized message. This runs great when I use Google Assistant to invoke it, BUT if I try to get Action Blocks to invoke it, it only shows the message as Text, it does not speak it. If I check the box in Action Blocks to "Always speak action out loud", it only speaks the name of the routine, not the Say Something text that is in the Routine Google says Action Blocks are part of its disability efforts https://support.google.com/accessibility/android/answer/9711267?hl=en#:~:text=Action Blocks uses the Google Assistant to make,to your Home screen with a custom image. And on that same URL with that message direct me to their disability support But that team says they don't support Action Blocks Does anyone know how to contact Google about Action Blocks issues? This would be a great feature for the disabled and elderly
  2. Has anyone else tried texting with Google Action Blocks? Brian did a great tutorial on Action Blocks but I'm having trouble sending a :"canned" text for an elderly person without having to confirm the canned message or even in some case, enter it · The sample message length requires confirmation · Short message sent WITHOUT confirmation · In this example, it requires the elder to type in or say the actual message… Definitely not what the Action Block was supposed to do or why have me enter a message at all if its just going to launch the messenger? · Even worse! Launches a browser….
