Enjoy YouTube Music free on Google Home speakers

Listening to music on your Google Home speaker right out-of-the-box seems too good to be true, right? It’s not! Starting today, YouTube Music is offering a free, ad-supported experience on Google Home speakers (or other Google Assistant-powered speakers).

Need a groove to get you ready for a night out? Say, “Hey Google, play Latin vibes.” Looking to kick off a dinner party or pick a power playlist for your home workout? We’ve got you covered. With YouTube Music and Google Home, you can ask Google Home to play the right music for any moment or mood, and YouTube Music will play the perfect station, customized to your tastes based upon your request.

For even more control when listening to music on smart speakers or in the YouTube Music mobile app, upgrade to YouTube Music Premium for $ 9.99/month. YouTube Music Premium on your smart speakers gives you the ability to request specific albums, songs, artists, and playlists on-demand. It also offers useful player controls, such as unlimited skips and song replay.

An upgrade to YouTube Music Premium also lets you background play music through the YouTube Music app while using other apps, and allows downloads for offline listening when you’re on-the-go. Best of all, listening is completely ad-free across every device. If you’re new to YouTube Music Premium, get a free 30-day trial.

We’ve made it easy to set YouTube Music as the music provider in your home. Here’s how to start:

If you already have a Google Home, navigate to Account Settings in your Google Home app, tap Services and select Music. Then, select YouTube Music as the default music service. If you are setting up a new Google Home speaker, choose YouTube Music as the default music service during the setup process.

Music fans can now listen to free, ad-supported YouTube Music on smart speakers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Japan, Netherlands, and Austria. It’ll be available in more countries soon.

For additional information, check out our Help Center. And if you want to enjoy YouTube Music everywhere and anywhere, download the YouTube Music app in the Play Store or App Store.
