Has anyone gotten these to work with Google Assistant on their phone WITHOUT having a Google Home device ?

Running Android 8.0 on an S7, not seeing "Home Control" or the option to add devices anywhere in the Google Assistant settings.
Have you followed the instructions I posted earlier? Failing try asking Google to open settings-home control

Thanks for that.
I've reinstalled the Google Home app alright, no joy.
There was a suggestion to change the language to English (US) but that didn't make the option appear either.

I had to plug mine in about 6 inches from the router and make sure your connected to a 2.4ghz wifi, once paired you can move them anywhere you want.

How do you get 2 people to share use of 1 sonoff ,is it simply a matter of the second person scanning for it?

Anyone having trouble with the widget?

I'm getting an error code half the time 'dont change too quickly' or similar message

I use mine with Google Home and the whole family can control them.

My two arrived and no customs charges, so that's great.
They paired with my wifi from another room and linked easily to my Google home devices, so that's great.
But it won't accept anything above 10 amp, so the plans for the kettle et,c are out the window.
Bar table lamps, has anyone put these to practical use.
