If you’re looking for a way to play music on your Google Home Mini, there are a few things you should know. First, you can request an artist by name, or ask for a specific song.
Some songs are available for free streaming, while others may require a subscription to Google Play Music or another paid subscription service.
For example, you can say:
- Hey Google, play some Taylor Swift
- Hey Google, play Sons and Daughters by the Decemberists
Controlling Music and Volume
To stop playing music, you can simply say, “Hey Google” and then “stop the music” or “stop”. You can also adjust the volume using your voice. The sound quality on the Google Home Mini is actually pretty decent, considering the size of the device.
Another neat capability is the ability to connect the Google Home Mini to other smart devices and stream music to an actual sound system. This can all be controlled by your voice.
Connecting External Services
If you subscribe to a music service like Spotify, you can add it to your Google Home Mini using Google’s app. Here are some helpful tips for how to do that.
Once you have an external service connected, it’s super easy to play music. If you’re using Spotify, for example, you would say “Hey Google, play Taylor Swift on Spotfy.”
