It can't read books, not sure if/when that's planned. My guess is they'll add new languages as quickly as possible. Scotland speaks English though right? So maybe you need to be more specific with the language if others are working. It's probably confused. Google Home will update on its own in the background, not really a reason to look since you can't force an update. And lastly, no, you can't connect it to Bluetooth. You can only use the speaker that it came with. Hope that info helps.

That's what I was wondering about the being specific. If you're saying In Gaelic and not Scotland, they may just not have added it yet. I haven't seen a way to request features yet, but my guess is that they're working on it.

You can't do Bluetooth speakers, and I actually don't think you would want to. It's designed to work with Chromecast audio, and the experience is amazing. The interface is as good as Sonos, but it's actually more flexible, and at a fraction of the cost.
