Are you tired of constantly having to use your phone or computer to play your favorite songs on Spotify through your Google Home device? Look no further! In this article, we will discuss two easy and free ways to stream your Spotify songs directly to your Google Home.

Method 1: Use the Google Home App

Step 1: Connect Your Spotify Account

To get started, make sure your Google Home and your phone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, open the Google Home app on your phone and navigate to the settings menu by tapping on the three horizontal lines in the top-left corner. From there, select “Music” and then tap on “Spotify.” You will be prompted to sign in to your Spotify account or create a new one if you don’t have one already.

Step 2: Set Spotify as Your Default Music Service

After connecting your Spotify account, go back to the “Music” section in the settings menu and make sure that Spotify is set as your default music service. This will ensure that all music commands given to your Google Home will play through Spotify.

Step 3: Control Playback with Voice Commands

Now that you have connected your Spotify account and set it as the default music service, you can use voice commands to control playback. Simply say “Hey Google, play [song/artist/playlist] on Spotify” and your Google Home will start playing the requested music. You can also use voice commands to pause, skip, or adjust the volume of your music.

Method 2: Use Bluetooth Connection

Step 1: Pair Your Devices

The second method requires your phone to have a Bluetooth connection. Make sure your Google Home and your phone are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, turn on Bluetooth on your phone and put your Google Home in pairing mode by saying “Hey Google, Bluetooth pairing.” Once your Google Home is in pairing mode, go to the Bluetooth settings on your phone and select your Google Home from the list of available devices. You may be prompted to enter a pairing code, which can be found on the bottom of your Google Home.

Step 2: Open Spotify and Play Music

Once your devices are paired, open the Spotify app on your phone and start playing music. The music will now play through your Google Home instead of your phone’s speakers. You can control playback using the buttons on your Google Home or through voice commands.

Step 3: Disconnect When Finished

When you’re finished listening to music through your Google Home, make sure to disconnect your phone from the Bluetooth connection. This can be done by going to your phone’s Bluetooth settings and selecting “disconnect” next to your Google Home device.


  • Can browse and search for specific songs
  • Can use any device with Bluetooth capability
  • No need to set up additional accounts or services


  • Requires a constant Bluetooth connection
  • Cannot control playback with voice commands
