Few days earlier, users started complaining that Google Home Max and Chromecast devices were causing Wi-Fi connectivity issues for other devices. While initially it was thought that users of TP-Link routers were facing these problems, later reports confirmed that user with Linksys and Synology routers were also facing similar problems. Thankfully, Google has started rolling out updates via Google Play services which will fix all of the issues completely.
Following the news that the Wi-Fi bugs in the devices were causing slowdown and disruptions in connectivity, Google was quick to acknowledge the issues. At the time the company said, “In certain situations, a bug in the Cast software on Android phones may incorrectly send a large amount of network traffic which can slow down or temporarily impact Wi-Fi networks. The specific impact to the network will vary depending on the router.”
If you are one of the users who are experiencing slow Wi-Fi connection or any other problem related to Google Home Max or Chromecast devices, you can download the Google Play Services to fix the problem as the update is rolled out on a periodical basis meaning you might need to wait for a while until you get the update automatically.
