Google Home Bluetooth issues: "Sorry, power controls is not yet supported"

Google Home Hub

I play music on my Google Home Hub through an external Samsung Bluetooth speaker.

This worked absolutely fine for around 6 months and then suddenly Google Home Hub instead of connecting to Bluetooth would respond "Sorry, power controls is not yet supported..."
