Google Home Speaker Now Bluetooth Compatible
Google updated its Google Home speaker with the ability to connect to Bluetooth devices. The search giant first announced the feature at its I/O developer conference earlier this year and has just now enabled the functionality. Using the Google Home app on mobile devices, Home owners can connect to the speaker via Bluetooth for streaming music or other media files. Until now, Home could only stream music through Google Cast connections (over WiFi). Google also enabled free Spotify accounts through Google Home this week. People who use the free version of Spotify can set the music provider as their default streaming service when listening via Google Home. Previously, Google Home only supported the paid Spotify Premium streaming service.
