In the meantime, users can try enabling Bluetooth on their devices and connecting to the paired speakers again. Additionally, users can check for updates and install them, as well as, follow any further instructions provided by the manufacturer. It is worth noting that some users report issues with Bluetooth pairing as well.

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!!

Many users have reported that their iPhone keeps disconnecting from Google Home speakers within 60 seconds of searching for a song to play, and even mid-way through streaming music. This is a frustrating problem that has been ongoing for over a year now, with many users seeking a solution.

Google Nest has finally acknowledged the issue on the Official Google Nest support thread, with a Nest support representative stating that their engineering team is aware of the problem and working on a solution.

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

However, this response doesn’t provide much comfort or a clear timeline for when users can expect a fix.

In the meantime, users can try enabling permissions for paired devices, checking their Bluetooth settings, and ensuring that Bluetooth is enabled on their device.

They can also try enabling pairing mode on their Google Home speaker, and selecting paired Bluetooth devices. Additionally, some users have found success using Spotify Connect instead of Google Cast.

It’s important to note that some users have reported that resetting their devices to factory settings and double-checking that all necessary permissions are enabled, has helped to alleviate the issue.

However, these are temporary solutions and Google Home should do a better job at addressing this problem and providing a more concrete solution.

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.

It’s important to note that performing a factory reset will erase all pairing with your other devices and settings, so you’ll need to set them up again. This can be a hassle, especially for those who may have missed small details in setting up their devices.

Another option for Apple users is setting up your phone as an AirPlay speaker using the Apple Music app instead of relying on the Bluetooth connection from Google Home Speaker. However, this will defeat the purpose of having a Google Home speaker.

Before trying to reset the device, make sure to check the permissions, start playback, and see if the system kills the connection.

Also, double-check that all necessary permissions are enabled and access settings, such as tap enable pairing mode, as this can be a simple solution as well

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!
