Google's Home, Home Mini and Home Max speakers can now play music and other audio on the other Bluetooth speakers you may have in the house. This is particularly useful for people who own Home Mini. The company's economical and compact speaker is perfect for consulting the Google Assistant, but it lacks depth and depth when it comes to playing music. Amazon already offers this option for its Alexa speakers.
"We brought this feature to life after hearing how much I wanted to amplify the sound with their Google Home Mini," the company said in a blog post. "Now any of your Google Home devices can connect to other Bluetooth speakers so you can control your entertainment experience simply by using the sound of your voice." You can also add your existing Bluetooth speakers to the Google Home groups for multi-room audio, which is where this might be useful for Home Max users.
You can pair a Bluetooth speaker with Google Home in the device settings section of the Start application. Simply configure it as your default speaker. Your Home device will continue to listen to your commands, but it will route all the audio through the connected Bluetooth speaker. However, this does not magically give those paired speakers the intelligence of Google Assistant. "You'll still have to talk to your Google Home device, not Bluetooth connected speakers, for questions like asking questions, getting weather updates and using smart home commands."
