The Google Home device is one of those awesome devices that can spice up your boring morning routines. It is one of those gadgets that will kick start your day with an awesome alarm sound. Now, if you’ve already purchased the Google Home device, you might want to know how to set a cool alarm sound. 


This is a question many people ask. Especially those who have purchased the product for the first time. Well, don’t worry. We have prepared an easy guide for you. All you have to do is follow these quick steps and you will set whatever sound you want as your alarm. 

This guide is extra straightforward and won’t waste too much of your time. Now, let’s get right to it. 

Step 1

Changing your alarm music on the Google Home device starts with your phone. Now, what you need to do is open the Google Home app on your mobile. Select “Devices”. Here, you can select which device you want to set the alarm to. When you’ve selected the device, press on the three vertical dots on the right side.


Step 2

Choose the first menu from the top. That menu is “Settings”. 

Step 3

 Go to “Music”. Again, this is the first menu from the top. 

Step 4

 Now, make sure that you select a default music server. You can pick any server you want. The process is the same. For the purpose of this guide, we have selected “Google Play”. We will choose the songs from this music server. 

Step 5

This is the interesting part. We have selected one playlist from Google Play. What you need to do now to set the alarm is to use the proper voice command. 

 If you previously used the voice command “Hey Google, set an 8 am an alarm.” That’s all you did. This time, you will have to use a different command. This is what you have to change. The voice command is the one that can help you set a song for your alarm. What you need to say is “Hey Google, wake me up at 8 am to Hello.” 

Notice that we have a song in the playlist called “Hello”. Basically, you can choose any song you want from your playlist. You can also choose the name of that playlist. If you use the voice command to say the name of the playlist, your entire playlist will be your new alarm sound. 

The same thing goes with the other music servers you use. You can use the same voice command for Spotify or YouTube. And that’s all you have to do. 


Changing your Google Home alarm sound is very easy. All it takes is a simple voice command. Once you get the hang of it, you will do it all the time. You have the choice to set any music or song you like as your alarm sound. It is convenient and very fun to use. Besides, it only takes a couple of seconds to set up. Hopefully, you found this guide helpful.
