Google Home, primarily designed as a vehicle for Google Assistant, is always listening to the environment, but it will not record what you’re saying or respond to your commands until you call “OK, Google”. We always named this as “Preprogrammed Wake Words”, and here’re some order examples when you need to play music on Google Home: "OK, Google, play...", "OK, Google, turn it up" or "OK, Google, stop".
Then someone may ask: Can we play Spotify Music on Google Home? Will Google Home support free Spotify accounts? Luckily, the answer is yes. Google has promised to make its Home line of speakers compatible with more music streaming services and later in August 2017, Home was available for non-paying users to stream music on it as well. That’s good news for Spotify users, but how to enjoy these amazing music on Google Home? Below will be two solutions about this question.
The following will guide you to set up Spotify on your Google Home, so please download a Google Home app before the start.
1. After download the Google Home app, please follow the prompts to set up your Home device.
2. Once connected, please go to “Setting”, select ”Music”, and click “Spotify” to set it as your default music service.
3. When the Google Home app asks you to link your Google and Spotify accounts, just put in your account info.
4. Now you can commend your Google Home to play Spotify music by saying “OK, Google......”
Although you’ve set Spotify as the default music app on Google Home, there will be some bugs when using it some time, such as, “Google Home cannot find Spotify”. So the method two will show you a better way to play your Spotify playlist on Google Home: upload your Spotify audio to Google Play Music to stream your Spotify music on Home more fleetly.
When trying to export the Spotify playlist to the Google Play Music, you may need to have your Spotify songs converted to MP3/AAC/FLAC/WAV in advance.
