Your Google Home or Google Nest device can be great to use, and it's especially great that you can set your favorite music service as the default, so you can always listen to your favorites. The whole process is pretty simple, so let's see what needs to be done.
What music streaming services do Google Home speakers support?
One thing you need to know is that the list of services that work with your Google device will vary depending on the country you're in. You can check all your music partners on the Google Assistant page.
However, we know that Google Home and Nest work with most of your favorite platforms like YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, and Apple Music. Unfortunately, Amazon Music is not supported, but you can still listen to music from this app using your Google device as a Bluetooth speaker.
How to set the default music streaming service on Google Home
Listening to your favorite music on your favorite streaming service is easy enough with Google Home devices. Since all iOS or Android devices are managed via the same Google Home app, you'll need to get started.
Restrictions on Google Home and Nest devices
It should be noted that the functionality of Google Home and Nest devices is limited by the type of subscription you have.
For example, if you have a free YouTube Music, Spotify, or Pandora account, you'll only get a station of songs inspired by the song, album, or artist you've been looking for.
However, if you have a YouTube Premium, YouTube Music Premium, Spotify Premium, Apple Music, Pandora Premium, or Deezer Premium subscription, you'll be able to listen to a specific song, album, or artist you've been looking for.
You can also listen to music based on genre, mood, or activity. You can also request your own personalized playlist. For this to work, you need to connect your account.
How to connect your subscription service to Google Home
By connecting your subscription services to the Google Home app, you'll get full access to everything it has to offer and all the content you're used to enjoying. The whole process is pretty easy to follow.
All music apps that are not connected will appear in the More Music Services area. Tap the Link button next to the name of the service.
Go through the disclaimer and accept data sharing between your Music app subscription and Google Home, as well as allowing Google Home to act on your behalf.
This is necessary for Google to translate your voice request into action on the service.
In just a few taps, your accounts will be connected and you'll be able to choose the app as the default music service on Google Home.
The next time you ask Google Home or Nest to play a song for you, they'll use the service you've chosen. If you want to use a different service, you must specify a command.
For example, if your default service is Spotify, but you want to play a song on YouTube Music, you'd say "Hey, Google, play Old Town Road on YouTube Music."
