In early August, Google released their new creation, “Google Home”, a connected personal assistant. Now, Google Home has had a new update: you can now stream your Spotify playlists on your connected speaker.
Making it easier to find music
Good news for all Google Home users in US, UK, Canada, Australia, France and Germany. You can now listen to the radio and stream your Spotify playlists from free accounts directly on your voice-activated smart speaker. Google are making it even easier to listen to music when you’re home. But it’s not the only advantage of the latest update.
We’ve all that moment when you want to listen to something in particular but you have no idea of the song’s title. With the new update, this is no longer a problem. If you don’t know the name of the song, but remember a lyric or perhaps the album cover, you just have to describe it to Google Home and the connected personal assistant helps you find what you’re looking for out of the Google database. Finding music has never been easier.
Unfortunately, only Spotify premium users can play specific songs and choose artists but Google Home will suggest a playlist inspired by what you asked for. At least there’s some progress…
And just in case you were curious, here’s a list of Google’s 10 most-searched lyrics from the past 12 months:
1. “Despacito,” Luis Fonsi
