Hi deesgooghome,

 

Thanks for visiting the Community.

 

Sorry to hear about this experience. Could you confirm if there are other accounts that connected to your Googel Nest speakers? Are there other person connected to the same Wi-Fi network where your Google Nest speakers are connected? Let's make sure to check these settings on the Home app to disable others to play music on your device.

 

  1. Open the Home app.
  2. Select Settings > Recognition & sharing
  3. Select "Let others control your cast media" - Switch on or off to allow all Android devices on the customer's Wi-Fi network to control media casting.

Let us know if these steps work.

 

Best,

Princess

No other accts connected and none of them have let others control media activated.

Hi deesgooghome,

 

Thanks for the additional info. Since you mentioned that there are no other accounts connected to your devices, I would recommend you to change your Wi-Fi network's password and set up your speakers again. That way, we can be sure that there are no other person that could bypass your network as well as the devices connected to it.

 

Keep us posted.

 

Best,

Princess
