On your phone, scan for the speaker name then try to connect to it. If you have previously connected to this speaker then it’s best to delete the speaker name from your phone before connecting to it.

Method 3: Device is not in range

The speaker and device it is connecting to should not be more than 100 feet apart from each other. This distance will decrease if there are a lot of obstructions or signal interferences such as walls between both devices. Try placing the speaker and the device it is connecting to side by side then check if the problem still occurs.
