Nest mini requires PIN to bluetooth to windows 10 via 2.1 EDR USB dongle?
Windows bluetooth via a 2.1 EDR USB dongle can "see" the Family room Speaker (it appears in the list of devices).
Upon choosing connect Windows is then asking for the device PIN.
The usual suspects (0000,1111,1234) don't work.
Windows then says "We didn't get a response from the device, try connecting again"
The device (mini) is in pairing mode as is the PCs bluetooth (discoverable)
The dongle can find and pair all other devices (bluetooth speakers, mobile phones etc.)
The mini can pair with mobile phones, other devices and doesn't require a PIN to do so.
Some have suggested a Windows problem
Thanks for reaching out.
To help you with connecting your device via Bluetooth, you may follow these steps:
Complete these steps if it’s the first time you’re connecting your speaker to your Google Nest or Home device.
This will remove your Bluetooth speaker from the paired device list. You'll need to pair and connect this speaker to use it again.
Tap the X next to the device you want to unpair Unpair.
Hope this helps.
