The Google Home connected speaker has been available for over a month now, but a few owners have since reported that the device just randomly stops playing music in the middle of playing a song. So far, there’s no explanation for why this might be happening.

Google’s support forums have a number of posts from owners on this issue, including one who says it occurs while using voice commands to play a song or when Google Home is casting from a phone or PC. Many of the owners have tried to reboot the speaker, but the problem keeps popping up.

Some users have speculated that a bad Internet or WiFi connection may be to blame, but others have stated their connection seems to be fine when it is in use to stream content to other devices.  A Google rep posted on the forums on Nov. 19 stating the company is going to do some “further research on this matter”. However, that’s the last time that a team member has posted on the issue in those forums. In the meantime, more and more owners of Google Home have been reporting the same random music interruptions.
