Google Home Hub only makes buzzing noise when connected to Bluetooth speakers 0 Recommended Answers 1 Reply 4 Upvotes

My Google home Hub has been paired successfully to a Bluetooth speaker for months with a few minor issues.  First, the audio sync between multiple home devices is a bit iffy when they are paired to Bluetooth.  That had improved lately for all the devices (3 Minis and the Home Hub).  The Home Hub, however, had lost the ability to maintain a Bluetooth connection if not actively playing music for a period of time (i.e., overnight).  That's when the trouble began.

Now, though, it is completely unusable.  When I pair the Bluetooth speaker, the home Hub just broadcasts a mechanical buzzing noise through the speaker, similar to how I expect an intercepted signal from Alien Invaders would sound.

Is this a firmware issue, hardware issue, or should we be tidying up the fallout shelters and stocking up on canned goods and firearms for the impending invasion?

I am experiencing this same issue. I have 2 Google Home Hub both paired each paired to a JBL Bluetooth speakers. If I try to play anything from either Spotify or YouTube Music to the speaker group I created with both hubs I will get the buzzing noise on one speaker and then music on the other hub (through the Bluetooth speaker). It is as though whichever Google home starts playing first can continue to play and the other will not. 

This feature was working when I got my home hubs a couple of months ago. Also strangely enought if I turn off the Bluetooth speakers entirely and just use default speakers in hub the multiroom works fine. 

Note: I have already tested both JBL speakers with pairing to both Android and iPhones so it's not an external speaker issue. I tested two different streaming services. (YouTube music and Spotify). Also I brought both hubs and speakers to my room where my Wifi Access point is just to be sure it was not a connection issue to the internet. Thus this has to be a firmware issue...so Google can you please fix this.
