Google nest audio delay

Community Member

Hello everyone I would like to ask you all for help. So I bought an extra Google nest audio speaker to pair together with my old one but it's terribly out of sync. I know what you're going to ask. Have you already used group delay correction??? Yes I did and there is no change at all It doesn't change after testing it on all levels for an hour long. Does anyone know another solution or maybe If possible an update which covers this problem? I can see that when I double the speaker the delay also doubles to 2 seconds long delay. If you have the answer please tell me

I understand official Google line is that using a Nest Audio Speaker Pair is not (yet) officially supported as audio output for a video source (such as the Chromecast with Google TV or NVIDIA Shield).

Group delay correction did nothing for me either. However, I found that there was also an audio delay correction setting on my NVIDIA Shield, and adjusting that did work temporarily, though it didn't seem to "stick" and I had to go back again to adjust it. Of course, if you are using a device like the Chromecast with Google TV, which does not have an audio delay setting, this won't help much.

Not sure if this is a Nest Audio, Chromecast, or Bluetooth issue (or a combination), but hopefully will be resolved. Would be great to be able to use a Nest Audio speaker pair for a TV/projector.

same problem
When I pass the audio from the pc I have a delay of 1 or 2 seconds.

by bluetooth the same.

I was reading in projects that the correction is impossible due to the buffer they have

the most feasible thing would be to delay the video to synchronize the audio but I see it complicated

It is already 1 year after the exit and there are no answers

You can see more of the same post in this place and you will see that there is no solution as such

Same problem with the audio TV using pair mode

Same here!

Bought the second Nest Audio to pair with the one I already had and use them as TV speakers/Sound system but it doesn't look like Google is trying to fix it as the problem dates a year back....

I'm sorry for my English

the only solution to synchronize audio with movies (vlc media )on the computer and youtube with chrome

1 * for youtube install a YouTube Audio / Video Sync extension
adjust audio to delay

2 * for vlc I use a program I found on github
Chromecast Desktop Audio Stream
