How to Link & Set up a Default Music Service on Google Home Speaker

Did you know that you can stream your favorite playlist all over your house using Google Home smart speakers? If you have your go-to playlist on your music streaming app, you can play it anywhere around the house at any time you want.

Google Home or Google Nest devices allow you to set up your music service subscription, so you can play it whenever you want on your Google device. Now, you don’t have to go over your phone and connect it via Bluetooth to hear your songs loud and surround yourself. All you have to do is make your device link your music streaming account and set it up as the default service.

You can add or change music streaming platforms like YouTube Music, Spotify, TuneIn, Deezer, Pandora, Sound Search, Apple Music, and more. Note that the services available may differ in every country. Best to check what services are available for you. As of now, Google devices do not support Amazon Music yet.
