It’s a known problem that the Bluetooth device will disconnect from Google Home over time, making it unusable.

We’ve found the only solution so far is to reconnect the Bluetooth on your phone or other device and then connect it again with Google Home. This can be very disappointing if you don’t know what the problem is.

Google Home has been experiencing this issue since 2018, but the real solution is not yet known. Thankfully, the company has acknowledged the problem and is working on getting this fixed.

bluetooth keeps disconnecting from google home

Some users mentioned that their iPhone disconnects from Google Home speakers within 60 seconds while searching for a song to play.

Not only that, it disconnects midway, too, while the music is playing!!

After almost one year, a Google Nest official has finally replied on the Official Google Nest support thread that their team is working to fix this issue.

“We are aware of the problem and our engineering team is working on a solution.” “Stay tuned for updates!” – Nest Support.

This doesn’t help much, though! All Google Home users want to know when they can expect it fixed.

It’s one thing if it takes a few days or weeks, but this has been going on for more than one year!

A quick update would be greatly appreciated, so we know what’s happening with our Bluetooth device that keeps disconnecting from google home speakers every time we try to use them!!

Try this workaround till Google finds a solution.

Factory Reset Your Google Home Speakers

To factory reset your Google Home :

  1. Go to the back of your device.
  2. Look for the microphone mute button and then press and hold it for about 15-20 seconds.
  3. Wait for the message “You are about to completely reset Google Home”.
  4. Press it till the reset starts.
  5. Power back after two minutes.

With the factory reset, all pairing with your other devices will be lost.

The only other recourse is setting up your phone as an AirPlay speaker using the Apple Music app instead of Bluetooth connection from Google Home Speaker with all these connection issues, defeating the whole purpose.

Still, we will have to do it until the “Bluetooth keeps disconnecting from Google Home” issue is fixed.

  1. I find that unplugging my Google hub and then plugging it back in allows the Bluetooth connection to be seen once again so I can cast and connect from my android. It’s frustrating though cause I have to unplugging it a few times a week now. Whereas before it would just be once in a great while.

  2. I had the same problem. Then I examined some of the settings from Home app from Android. The default setting of speaker delay was 0ms. I changed it to 2ms and the problem has not appeared yet. Perhaps some delay introduces buffering, preventing overflow.

  3. I had this problem and I just now had my nest connected for 12 hours prior to writing this:

    *Open the google home nest app on your phone or whatever device your connected from.

    *Make sure its completely loaded and it has the volume control panel showing along with speaker name.

    *You dont have to keep this app up but it has to be running in the background. In layman’s terms, you can use other apps while playing bluetooth but just make sure your google nest app isn’t exited out of.

    I’d known about this trick for awhile but was just searching up why it does that. I was curious because my friend who has an iPhone 11 never has issues with it, he doesn’t even have the app downloaded. While I have a Samsung Note 8 and it seems to do this every other song. I hope this helps!
