Google Home's multi-room audio now works with Bluetooth speakers

Google Home's multi-room audio now works with Bluetooth speakers

Once tethered to your Google Home, you'll be able to ask Google Assistant to play music on your other speakers either by itself or part of a larger group.

It must be noted however that users still need to talk to their Google Home device and not the connected Bluetooth speakers for asking questions, getting weather updates and using smart home commands. You can pair a Bluetooth speaker located in the living room with the Mini, and have audio play from both at the same time.

Together, Google Home and Bluetooth speakers make the ideal arrangement for amping up the music throughout your entire home.

However, all things considered, this is a huge boost for Home owners with additional Bluetooth speakers. While the Google Home and especially the Google Home Max offer superior audio capabilities, the Mini was created to be a cheap entryway into the smart home world, not as a high-end way to listen to tunes. Recently the company announced the release of the Solo Extreme E600X-EQ Bluetooth Speaker that is engineered as a mobile speaker with the ability to easily connect to your devices. This extension of the smart speaker's existing Bluetooth capabilities is now rolling out today.

What is Google Assistant? Think of it as your own personal ... Open the Google Home app on your smartphone and head to Device Settings by tapping the icon in the upper right-hand corner.

The firm says: "Now any of your Google Home devices can connect to other Bluetooth speakers so you can control your entertainment experience simply using the sound of your voice". Set the Bluetooth device as your default speaker.

Google adds in a blog post: "Do you hear that?"
