It is the time of virtual assistants and more and more people decide to get on the bandwagon of this world. One of the quintessential devices that give us a complete experience as an assistant is the Google Home range.

These devices have the Google Assistant integrated, one of the assistants whose ecosystem is more mature than that of most of its competitors. However, there are still certain limitations on some of the services it offers.

These types of limitations can be found for example in music services that are compatible and fully integrated with the Google Assistant ecosystem.

How to play music from other providers on Google Home

In order to use other music providers, we will first need to link our device with Google Home through a Bluetooth connection. We will first need to activate this type of connection on our Google Home device saying: ” Ok Google, activate Bluetooth .”

Next, we must go to the Bluetooth settings of the device where we will use Apple Music or another music service and link with the Google Home, which will appear with the name that we have given it at home.

It is important to remember that through this connection all the audio from the device will be played on the Google Home. This includes voice memos, videos, notifications, calls, etc.
