Now just ask Google to play something, e.g. "OK Google, play Discover Weekly".

Find voice commands on the Google support site.

Set Spotify as the default

Make it so you don’t have to say “on Spotify” at the end of your voice commands.

Google Home gives you the option to do this when you ask it to play music, simply say “yes” to agree.

To make Spotify the default player manually:

  1. In the Google Home app, tap Account in the top-right.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Music under services.
  4. Select Spotify to set it as the default music player for your Google Home.

Add multiple Spotify accounts

You can use Google Voice Match to add more Google accounts to your device which you can then link to more Spotify accounts.

Or, to switch accounts, unlink the current Spotify account:

  1. In the Google Home app, tap Account in the top-right.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Music under services.
  4. Tap UNLINK.
  5. Link a new Spotify account.
