AAC is an audio codec.  Check your Redmi user manual about AAC.

this has been a problem for me ever since the google home came out, i bought it as soon as it dropped and have had the Bluetooth problem since they enabled it. Tried two different iPhones and a new google home mini and have always had this problem. This is seriously annoying me and i want this fixed because this is stupid.

You probably have a better chance of smashing it to pieces fixing the problem than Google actually responding to or fixing it.

Same problem with an iPhone XR here, will randomly disconnect every 5 to 20 minutes. Phone is like 2 feet from the speaker and not moving in a stand. Doesn't happen with our Echo's...

Mine keeps disconnecting from default Bluetooth device/speaker every day. Then my speakers start beeping in the middle of the night because they got disconnected from Google home. So annoying, they are standing within 5 feet of each other. I wish it had an audio jack like Amazon echo dot so I didn't have to use Bluetooth at all.

I have the exact same problem as Valhan, my Home Mini disconnects from the Bluetooth speakers every night and as a result my Bluetooth speakers start beeping.  I need to go into the Home app on my tablet, remove the speakers from the Bluetooth paired devices list (it's the only device on the list) and then do the pairing all over again.
Extremely frustrating and it defeats the purpose of having a voice-controlled assistant when I have to go back into the app every day and redo the pairing. I thought this thing was supposed to SAVE me time?

Same problem here... I have a little bluetooth-to-aux adapter I have plugged into my home speaker system, so I can play music through my living room speakers via bluetooth. My phone connects fine, but whenever I try to connect my Google home mini it will play one song through the speakers then disconnect. This also happens when I speak to the Google home in the middle of a song; it disconnects, answers through the google home mini, and then continues to play music through the google home mini instead of bluetooth. Even set the bluetooth adapter as the default music speaker, but to no success

This is a widespread problem with both Google home and mini. I've been trying to use my Google home as a Bluetooth speaker with my windows 10 PC and it constantly disconnects. I've tested it with my phone and it's the same. I've contacted Google support via live chat  and they have no solution. There are threads going back to early 2018 reporting this problem and still they have not produced a fix. I've been a big fan of Google but their inability to fix what seems like a relatively simple problem is a worry. I will be contacting customer support again to see what progress they have made next week and I advise everyone with this problem to do they same.

The latest firmware 146679 totally broke Google Home Mini's bluetooth functionalities. Before it would randomly disconnect from the bluetooth speakers it connected to, but now it's a guaranteed event, after one song. I would ask "Hey Google, play some classical music" and it would start playing a classical music station from YouTube Music. It will stop after one song and lose bluetooth connection, forever, until you remove the device and pair it to Google Home Mini again. Again, it would play ONE SONG regardless of what you ask it to do and lose the bluetooth connection forwever. You could try "Hey Google connect bluetooth" but it won't work. The only way it would work is to remove the device and pair again. Whatever the bluetooth problem we had before, version 146679 made it 10 times worse. It does not look like Google cares about this market, after all.

Same thing for me too, latest Google home mini firmware 146679 made the Bluetooth disconnect issue worst when playing music. The funny thing is when I'm connected by Bluetooth and not playing music it stays connected with no disconnects.  It must be something with the codec.

I am having an issue with a mini speaker from google. It randomly disconnects from Bluetooth with iPhone 7+ ios 12.2. I use Spotify mostly. Do not have issues with other Bluetooth devices so I don't think it's the phone. Any fix in the works yet? Thanks for the help in advance.

Why the heck is Google not responding to help us here?  We all have the same issue - and it’s an extremely basic one.   This is a friggin wireless speaker.  I’d say that playing music without disconnecting is probably something that should work... Answer your customers Google.  We all bought your product - many of us multiple ones.   Now it’s time for you to supply support because your products aren’t working.  This is support.google.com right?  That’s what it says in my browser.  Anyone else seeing that as well?

I also told them i want my money back if this issue isn't fixed by next month.

Now i know when purchasing promotion google product (hardware) make sure to reconsider very hard.

Easy fix, just reboot Home and reselect your speakers as default music device (no need to pair again). I was going nuts yesterday after pairing a new set of speakers and having it drop after one song, like some other users reported. Now, I've been listening for a few hours without problems.

Can confirm.  Only just recently switched from and Echo and and Dot over to a Home Hub and a Mini.

The mini in the bedroom frequently drops the Bluetooth connection. Sometimes within 10 seconds or 5 minutes, sometimes slightly longer. Very frustrating.

Here's hoping it's a simple software fix.

The current production firmware for Google Home Mini is 1.37.151425. I just checked my Mini's and thy are still running 1.37.146679. I have tried to reboot and reset them but I was unable to persuade them to upgrade their firmware. The hope is that the current firmware would fix the BT problems but my Mini's simply refuse to update. What gives?

I got it after exhausting discussion w google support team.
Follow steps to force update firmware to current.
From Home App
1. Selected connected device
2. Setting
3. Preview Program (From Off to On)
4. Unplug Home Mini and plug back in after 30 sec.
5. When Mini turns on it will take abt 3 min to update w new firmware.
I am still testing it if disconnection will be reoccur.
Right now it is still connected been like 15 min lol..

Thank you David. I followed your steps and now all my minis are running the latest firmware. You don't have to unplug the minis though, just rebooting them would suffice.

Although I'm not sure if the bluetooth issues have been entirely resolved (David is still having problems, obviously), but my minis are at least behaving differently. I am able to ask the mini to "play some music" and the music would come out from my BT-connected speakers without disconnecting. So far so good. I will report back any new findings.

Oh one more thing. If you are using Home App on an Apple device, you won't be able to see that "Preview Program" option. You will have to use an Android device in order to see that. The UI for iOS and Android are entirely different. Thank you Google for such a thoughtful design decision ;=P

Bluetooth issue still persists.  Whenever I try to reconnect it, it connects as regular bluetooth device instead of bluetooth audio in windows 10.  I had to reboot to connect as bluetooth audio.

The update didn't fix the issue rather, gotten worse.
I have spoken with the Google support numerous time before & after the firmware update and they are well aware of this issue.  As far as the fix is concern they are still working on it.
Not sure abt., ETA tho.  I truly want to return the 2 of them i owned for the refund.
There are 2 options at this point.
1. Wait for the Fix
2. Eat your lost and get Echo Dot 3rd gen Sale for $29.99 Echo Input $19.00 and never to buy google products ever again.
I have echo 3rd gen and 2nd gen dot and they have no issues w bluetooth connectivity issues.

Same issue.

Using it as a bluetooth speaker on Windows 10 Pro. It disconnects randomly after some time.

Contacted Google support two months ago. The said it's a known issue, they are working on it. After two months I contacted them again. They said they are working on it. 

I'm afraid it will never be fixed.

I can't believe BIG G can't fix this critical problem after so many months.

This is embarrassing.

I think the fastest way to fix the problem, like some wrote here, is to contact Google Support directly, everyone who has the same problem.
