I am interested in using my Nexus Player (or other bluetooth device) as a Smart Lock trusted device for my phone. My goal was to be able to unlock my device without needing my usual pin while sitting on the couch. It seems like my Nexus Player (which never moves from under my TV) is a good candidate for that.
When I navigate to Settings -> Security -> Smart Lock -> Trusted devices -> Bluetooth, I can see it listed, but not connected:
The devices are paired (but not connected):
Is there any way to use these as Smart Lock trusted devices?
