Audio technology has changed a lot in the past few years. The speakers have gone from analog to digital and now use fiber optics to transfer signals across different speakers. Many decades have passed but still many users have old analog or digital speakers. Users can make those snacky and big speakers smart once again with the help of just a Bluetooth Audio Receiver and Google Home/Nest devices.
Google has recently enabled a facility to connect Bluetooth speakers wirelessly using one-to-one Bluetooth connectivity. In our guide connecting old speakers wireless with Google Home devices, the user needs to buy certain things.
