    I followed the instruction to create Google Assistance with IFTTT and Join.

    I have existing profiles and tasks that I use with Autovoice to control smart home devices with Authomation. Does it just work by issuing the autovoice commands or is there something else that I'd need to do before it work?
    When I issue the command on the Google Home, I see the popup on my phone with possible commands but nothing happens.

    That was the exact steps I followed to the T. When I issue the command GH says OK but nothing happens.

    So I went on and test the "say hello" command and GH is saying "Sorry I don't know how to help with that"

    Are you saying "AutoVoice say hello" instead of just "say hello"?

    No, I was wondering why GA wouldn't trigger any of my tasker events. So I went on and and created the "Say Hello" example per the guide but it wouldn't do it either. The screen shot above basically match exactly what on the instruction.

    FWIW: I setup the "Ring" feature for GA and IFTTT and it rings my phone just fine. Which means the API key isn't the issue.
