How to Connect iPhone or iPad to Google Home Using Bluetooth


Hey everyone. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’m going
to show you how to connect your Apple iPhone or iPad to your Google Home speaker using
Bluetooth. When the Google Home speaker was initially
released, you had to almost literally jump through hoops to play audio from your iPhone
or iPad through the powerful speaker. However, an update in 2017 addresses this
issue, and makes it possible for users to pair their iPhone or iPad with their Google
Home speaker in just a few seconds. Immediately after pairing, you’ll be able
to enjoy audio played from your iPhone or iPad on your connected Google Home speaker. And now, let’s walk though how to connect
your iPhone or iPad to your Google Home speaker using Bluetooth. Step 1. Make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your
Apple iPhone or iPad. You can do this by swiping up on your device
to open the command center. Locate the Bluetooth icon, which appears by
default within the cluster of icons in the upper left corner of the screen. If the background color of the Bluetooth circle
is white, tap it to make it blue to enable Bluetooth. If the background color of the Bluetooth circle
is blue, that means Bluetooth is already turned on. Step 2. Stand next to the Google Home speaker you
want to pair with, and say, “Pair Bluetooth.” Your Google Home speaker will tell you to
open your device’s Bluetooth settings and then look for the name of your Google Home
speaker to connect to. Your Google Home speaker will tell you the
specific name to look for. In this example, I’m looking for Living Room
Home. Step 3. Tap the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad
home screen. The Settings screen opens. Step 4. Tap “Bluetooth” toward the top of the Settings
menu. The Bluetooth screen opens. Your Google Home Speaker appears in the Other
Devices section toward the bottom of the screen. Step 5. Tap the name of your Google Home speaker beneath
Other Devices. In this example, I’ll tap “Living Room Home.” The device will automatically show up with
a Connected status in the My Devices section. Congratulations! You now know how to connect your iPhone or
iPad to your Google Home speaker using Bluetooth. Thanks for watching. Leave your thoughts and questions in the comments

Spent hrs @ his place trying but nothing. Thanks. Do you have anything on setting up for calls? Cheers & Happy New Year!

    iPad a1432 you can't download Google mini since it uses the old iOS 9 which is not compatible with Google mini. You will need to update to iOS 10 or higher in order to download the Google home app
