Google’s range of smart speakers have long supported direct streaming from the internet as well as Bluetooth audio from your phone or tablet, something the HomePod can’t do but since the end of 2018 the Bluetooth functionality hasn’t really worked, with users saying that Bluetooth connections just seem to drop.
Google has now finally said that they are now looking into the issue and will update soon once they have a solution.
“Apologize for the delayed response here. I know how annoying and challenging it can be to Our team is aware of this issue and are currently investigating for a fix.”
