Release Control Kodi with your Google Home
"Work around" is specified in the github readme as "normal setup". Wink

Where it breaks is probably your Google Homes language settings. With it set to german it does recognize some english words, but not others. So the text output that gets transfered over to your Glitch webserver probably is different.

And again - this is probably connected to the language settings of the google account you are signed into Google Home with. Not just the dropdown menu in IFTTT.

So words like back, or home simply might not be recognized correctly - and its at that point where the chain fails.

Luckily this project lets you set up your own voice triggers, which means, you even can localize the commands.
(According to the readme, there is even a way to do this on the server level, so you dont have to create 20 IFTTT actions (like I did Wink ).)

Another bonus of the 'workaround' is, that you can have 7 different voice commands for /playpause - which I'm taking advantage of. Makes me think less.. Wink
