    Can this be updated to reflect how one links accounts on the new Android Google Home app (ver.1.26+)? "OK Google, open Anova" and the Discover tab no longer works the way described above.

    I also couldn't find Anova under Home control on the new Google Home App. I was able to get Anova and my WiFi cooker linked to my google account though and use it with Ok Google.

    As background I do have a Pixel 2 XL which I believe comes pre loaded with Google Assistant(I dont have the app installed but I think it comes pre baked into the phone). I am assuming this would work on other devices, but I don't have any other to test on.

    I had google home and my google home mini speaker already setup so I went straight to "Ok Google, open Anova." on my home screen. Nothing opened up on my screen, but in the notifications section I had a notification to launch the google assistant web browser and login to my Anova account (not the community account, the app account) As a test I closed that out an opened up my Google Home app (version under the discover section I had the option to Link Anova like the pictures above under "related to your recent activity". I then linked my account. I was unable to locate any other reference to Anova in the google home app. However, When I used the voice command "Ok Google open Anova" I was met back with options to control my cooker. It appears to me that this is leveraging Google Assistant or possibly the older Google Now.

    Hopefully this is useful to you. If I can answer any follow up questions I will try to.
    Happy Cooking!

    In current versions of the Google Home app, open the menu on the top left, and go to Explore. it should be right near the top. From there, search for Anova.

    From there you can Link or Unlink your Anova as required.

    You can also set shortcuts, so you don't have to Open Anova every time, or even Ask Anova to [...].

    check on my cook -> Ask Anova to check on my cook.
