Spotify Free Users* Can Now Listen on Google Home

Ever since the launch of Google Home, if you were a Premium Spotify user, with a simple “Ok Google, Play Spotify” your Assistant helped you control music listening, all hands free. That changes today..

We’re excited to announce that, starting today, both Spotify’s Free and Premium users are able to enjoy Spotify on Google Home in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, France and Germany. This marks the first time that Spotify has been available to our Free users on a voice-activated speaker, and we’re thrilled to work with Google to continue to fill the homes of all of our users with music.

If you’re just getting started with Spotify on Google Home, here are a few tips:

  • Set Spotify as your default music service
  • Ask Google to play music! Here are a few sample voice commands to get you started:
    “Ok Google, play Spotify”
    “Ok Google, play Discover Weekly”
    “Ok Google, play Rap Caviar”
    “Ok Google, play my “chill” playlist”

Mikael Ericsson, Spotify’s Product Director, Platform & Partner Experience, said “We are incredibly excited that, from today, millions of Spotify’s Free users will be able to enjoy Spotify in their homes through voice-activated speakers for the very first time, thanks to the Assistant on Google Home.”
