Hi can someone help me with this problem? 

 

My Google home is connected to my desktop but I'm unable to play music or use it as a speaker 

This is something that started happening about 1 year ago, 

The speaker is connected but is under other Bluetooth devices and I'm unable to use it as a speaker

I have removed the connection and connected again but is the same thing 

I have also enabled pairing devices from the home app with the same result 

The speaker is working normally with the normal voice commands 

Can someone help?

Alsa I have factory restarted the speaker and added the network again with no result.

Remove the Bluetooth connection on your computer, as casting will work better.  You can you this to cast your audio..step by step install is instructions are listed.  Let me know if this works

Expectley hou im using all my Bluetooth headphones and speakers
