Google Home Can Now Stream Music You've Uploaded to Play Music

Google Home adds support for streaming uploaded/purchased songs from Play Music

Announced today via the company's product forum, Google Home can now play music users have personally uploaded to Google Play Music, as well as music purchased directly from Google Play.

With this update, many Google Home users would be at peace as they can now play songs from their personal playlist on Play Music. But now all those songs that you've uploaded to the cloud server and those that you actually bought will be included in the songs that you can stream. The update should be quite welcomed by many of us, who have kept and gathered collections of songs through the years, as you can now stream them on the Home device, just like on-demand tracks for subscribers or free radio plays. It will even be the priority if you ask Google Assistant to play something for you on the speakers.

Since Google Home and Google Play Music are from the same tech giant, you would think that they will work seamlessly together.

While Google Home is a perfectly fine device and a good alternative to the Amazon Echo, especially if you prefer Google's services, there are some limitations when it comes to music playback, where for now users have been limited to playing songs in the on-demand section of Play Music (assuming that's your preferred choice of service). The feature is not available when asking Google to play a song by genre, mood or activity. If you haven't set Play Music as your default music player on Google Home, you'll have to say something like "OK Google, play X on Google Play Music" to listen to your music.

Google is now rolling out the feature all across the globe, and it should soon be available in the countries where Home is supported.
