Anyone been able to solve this problem? Google Home App (Android) won't link with Smart Apps and Locks

See above as the problem is you go to trouble of setting up your smart things, and your locks and then your hard work is met with frustration! I kept getting this error message even thou as you can see that smart things IS LINKED with Google Home, but google home ignores the 1 device in smart things if it is a lock (mine is a schlage)

So figured id share this with my partial solution.

Apparently, if you have invested in smart things hub, and only tied your smart lock to it, Google home won't pick it up (reason atm is unknown, prob security-related??)

I created a scene in Smart Things, which then has picked up by google home after i associated a routine to it in the Google Home app. This works but my issue is right now it only works on one speaker.

Let me know if anyone knows why an app routine would only work on a single speaker in Google Home I figured it gets sent to all of them. When I try it on others "lock the door, unlock the door" it says some type of error.
