I have an issue using the following versions

Chrome 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) (64-bit)

MacOS Sierra 10.12.6

When I open a new tab, sometimes all my bluetooth devices (headphones, mouse, keyboard) become disconnected. They come back in ~5 minutes, resetting devices or the bluetooth module doesn't help

The issue was in the voice search ("OK Google")

When a user opens a new tab, Chrome sometimes tries to access microphone to use voice search which breaks bluetooth connectivity.


Go to chrome://flags/ and disable option "Enable Voice Search on the local NTP"


Experience this issue after macOS Ventura update but it could've happened to anyone depending on the Handoff configuration. If you're using an Apple device, try this:

Go to System Setting > General > Airdrop & Handoff and ensure this is all turned off.

If it doesn't work, try other troubleshooting but this did work for me.
