Google Home can now stream music uploaded to Google Play Music

Google Home can now stream music uploaded to Google Play Music

This is something that's been noticeably absent from Google Home since its release last October, but a Google support representative has finally confirmed that this feature is now making its way to all Home devices. 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 Play Music subscribers who rock either the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus might have noticed that they were able to access New Release Radio, an in-app feature exclusive to Samsung's pair of flagships. But as part of a server-side update, uploaded and purchased songs can now be requested and played. If you dig music but don't have the time to constantly keep up with your favorite artist's new releases, you should go check it out at Google Play Music. On the free service, uploaded/purchased content will place first before radio stations. It will even be the priority if you ask Google Assistant to play something for you on the speakers.

Support for streaming purchased and personally uploaded music to the service is now rolling out for all markets where available. It offers daily updates and new music for the listener to enjoy with each refresh.

Google notes that this feature is still rolling out to Home and that it will be available in all supported regions.
