You don't need Wi-Fi for a good time
You can always ask Google Assistant on your Nest Audio, Nest Hub, Google Home, or any other Assistant-powered speaker, to play music from your favorite streaming service. But it's also possible to use these devices as traditional Bluetooth speakers and stream music to them directly from your phone or tablet. This comes in handy when you're looking to play a locally stored music file or audio clip on the speaker or display — during an internet outage, for example.
Here, we'll go over how to use a Google Home, Nest Audio, or Nest Hub as a Bluetooth speaker.
You can use any of the following Nest or Home devices from Google as a Bluetooth speaker:ANDROIDPOLICE VIDEO OF THE DAY
In fact, almost any Google Assistant-powered smart speaker or display can be used as a Bluetooth speaker. The pairing process remains the same irrespective of the specific device.
Once you've completed steps 1–6 above, your speaker can be paired via Bluetooth to any compatible device — including phones, tablets, Windows PCs, or Macs.
After completing the pairing process, you can play audio from any app on your Assistant speaker or display.
To connect to the speaker/display again, select its name from your device's Bluetooth settings. Alternatively, you can say, "Hey Google, open Bluetooth" or "Connect Bluetooth," and the Assistant-powered speaker/display will link up with the last connected device.
Similarly, to disconnect a paired phone or tablet, you need to say, "Hey Google, disconnect" or "Hey Google, disconnect Bluetooth."
The best way to manage Bluetooth devices paired with your Assistant speaker or display is through the Google Home app.4 Images ExpandExpandExpandExpand
You can also use your voice and ask Google Assistant on your speaker or display to "clear all paired devices" or "unpair devices." However, unlike in the Google Home app, you cannot unpair just one device at a time — the entire list of paired devices will clear when you use this method.
