Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) constantly pauses music streaming Youtube Music

I recently added a Google Nest Hub 2nd Gen to my bedroom. I already have a Google Mini speaker there. I have used it to stream Youtube Music all the time on the Mini without issue. When I try to stream Youtube Music to the Nest Hub it plays the song for a few seconds and pauses. When I unpause it plays for a few seconds and pauses again. I put both devices in a speaker group and it will just always constantly pause on the Nest Hub. The Mini does not have this issue at all.

OMG, I think I figured it out. I turned off gestures just now and it seems to have fixed my issue of streaming audio and the cut off responses. Somehow it thought I was gesturing to stop it I suppose.

I have the same issue. The music is played from Youtube Music for maybe 20 minutes, and it pauses. This is not happening with my Google Nest audio

Still no update on how to fix this issue. My hub is basically only good for viewing my nest doorbell at this point.

You're a star, thank you - been having the hub randomly resuming playback & pausing for a few weeks now and given the infrequency of it had put it down to a bug 'they would likely address' not considering it may well be me waving about like a **bleep** and triggering gesture controls 🙈 haha.
Gestures off, problem solved! 👍
