@Naagod Google Assistant has a log of what you said, but unfortunately that doesn't include what Google did.

 

Have your tried, instead of speaking commands, just tapping on the device in Google Home, to see if it's related to speech recognition?

@DeanGibson my testing is mostly using the google app. From all my testing, voice commands execute what's in the app, when it doesnt work in the app, it doesnt work by voice command either.

 

The last 24 hours it's been working perfectly. Didnt change anything but I noticed a slight improvement since I deleted my first google account and created a new one just for Google Nest. Gonna continue testing this and will put here any updates.

actually my bad. I've been trying two plugs (2 and 3), but now I noticed that plug 1 and 2 are now both turning on/off plug 2. Plug 3 is working fine now. Nonetheless this is nothing new, it happened before.

@Naagod You might try completely different (from what you are using now) names for the devices.  Note that "camera", "lamp", "light", "TV", "level", & a number of other words have special meanings (in my experience) to Google Assistant.  Sometimes it's a "dance" to pick words that won't be misunderstood.

I actually tried that before, (it didn't work, problem remained) but still it doesn't explain why it would turn on/off other device, and it would probably be a problem for all users. If that's the problem then, it's definitely not worth to use Google Home :) The names I'm using are Camera, Moisty (for my dehumidifier) and Heater. The problem also happened when I had only 2 plugs. Already switched the devices physically to see if it was 1 device that could have a problem, but it wasn't.
