    I get the same issue, I hear a buzz at the beginning of the answered sentences in my speaker and clear voice after two seconds of the sentences start.

    @jrcelis
    What kind of speaker do you use? Analog? HDMI output? USB? Bluetooth?
    Except for Bluetooth speaker, All others could have buzz sound.

    Hello @Sean and thanks for your help. I’m using the speaker that is coming with Google Voice Kit V1 and is working fine when I’m testing the sound, no buzz or distorted sound and the beginning of the sentences, the issue starts when I click the speaker icon when MMM-assistantk2 is running, the assistants answer start whit a big distorted noise o buzz and then will be fine.

    @jrcelis
    Unfortunately, I’m not an expert in sound configuration.
    I use node module speaker for output. The buffered voice output from Google Assistant Server is directly piped to speaker module. And there is narrowly little margin to control speaker module.

    My guess is, burden of system could make some delay causing distortion. but just guessing.

    Anyway, I’m considering to convert voice output to mp3 file then play it. but it needs somewhat computing power, so I’m not sure whether it will be really good for RPI.
    Or I will search other solution for better result.



  • Hello! I got Hotword working but assistant triggers error. I tried to rebuild electron as explained in the installation guide but it’s not working. I have the google voice kit installed on my raspberry… do you think that is the problem?

    @mariecbilodeau more details are needed to answer. Error logs or screenshots could be helpful.



  • this is when I load my mirror with just hotword and assistant installed. I’ll try to rebuild electron again to get the log

    MagicMirror will not quit, but it might be a good idea to check why this happened. Maybe no internet connection?

    @mariecbilodeau
    “gyp ERR …” lines are needed. Your log is missing those infos.



  • is there any way to play local stored mp3 files on the raspbery pi using the play … command

    currently when saying prhases like play mp3 it says oke and stops.

    im wondering if it is possible to play music mp3s from the music folder using the built in player of vlc player by sying the google command of a gaction

    would be a nice addition to the plugin
