It seems This is no longer required on devices with Google assistant as it seems Google has enabled the action for mobile devices... But not yet for wear 2.0

Hi!
For some reason, Google won?t let me install the app on my cel phone... maybe a region lock (I'm in Brazil). Any way around this? Or would it be possible do download the apk directly?
Thank you!

Not really needed anymore ... Since Google Assistant on androids can now access the Vera Concierge assistant.

Actually...
Google has seen fit to only release Google Assistant for newer phones (Upgrade incentive?).   :(
I tend to retask older stuff so I still have an s4 and an s5 in use and they can't run GA.

In other words, please don't abandon the Vera Concierge Android App!   :'(

And, thanks again for all your great work.

The app is still out there ... and it's pretty simple ... so maintaining it should be easy.

Is it possible to install Concierge on Raspberry Pi? And is it available for use in South Africa, please?
If possible, please let me have detailed instructions for installation on Pi. Many thanks always for all your efforts.

I initially marked it for deployment to English speaking countries, because you must talk to it in English for now.
I have now released it for world wide distribution ... but you must still talk to it using English for now.
As a result you device names and room names need to be able to be recognized in English. (Actually you can set English aliases in the Local Vera Concierge configuration.)

I am dependent on Google roadmap for Google Assistant extensions in other languages.

Try to issue a:
    Use "Your Vera Name"

This will reset the list of know devices.
