How To Make A Google Home Playlist

To get the most out of your Google Home device, you need to link it to your playlist. That way you will enjoy your favorite songs whenever and as much as you like. In this guide, we will show you how you can do exactly that.


How you can link any of the music sources and how to create a playlist. One that your Google Home will play. These sources are YouTube, Google Play, Pandora, and Spotify. Basically, any of the music sources you want to use as playlists. So, let’s get right to it.

Step 1

The first and most important thing is to link any of the music sources to your Google Home device. If you don’t link those accounts, you can’t play the playlists. So, what you want to do is open the Google Home app and go to the “Settings” menu. Here, scroll down a bit to find “Services”. What you want is to select “Music” which is the first option from the “Services” menu. 

Step 2

Here you can see all the music services that are available for the Google Home. What you want to do before you create a playlist is see if that music service is supported by the device. Now, select any of these music services as your default by selecting the circle on the far-right end. 

Since in this case, we have already linked the sources, you will see a “Link” word instead of “Unlink” right under the music service. Tap it. Log in with your user ID and password. Now, your Google Home is linked to the music service you want. 

Step 3

Now, it’s time to create a playlist. Since we have selected Google Play as our default, we will show you how to make a playlist on this music service. To do it, open the Google Play Music. Select the song you want to add to your playlist or simply type it in the search bar.

Step 4

Once you’ve opened that particular song, go to the “Song Settings”. This is the button that looks like three vertical dots. Select the option “Add to playlist”. 

Step 5

Since you don’t have a playlist, this is the window you are going to see. What you want to do now is create a new playlist. Click on the right button to add a new playlist. 

Step 6

Here you can add the name and the description of the playlist you want to create. When you are done customizing the options, select “Create playlist”. Now the song you have selected will be added to your playlist. 

Step 7

For any other songs, you might want to add, simply select the playlist you’ve already created. Now that you’ve created the playlist, every time you add a new song, you can select the premade playlist. Or, you can create a new one. 


That’s it! Now you know how to link your Google Home device to your playlist and how you can create that playlist. All you have to do now is issue the command for the Google Home to play that playlist. Pronounce the name of the playlist and enjoy. Let us know if you found this guide helpful in the comments below.
