If you own a Google Home speaker (or any of the other Google Assistant-powered speakers) you can now listen to YouTube Music for free. You will have to put up with ads, and you won’t be able to request specific songs, but it’s still better than nothing.

Until now, Google Home users who wanted to listen to YouTube Music through their smart speaker had no other option but to subscribe to YouTube Music Premium. Now, this free, ad-supported version of YouTube Music gives them a simple way of streaming music.

YouTube - Music - Premium - Google - Specific

Unlike YouTube Music Premium, you can’t ask Google to play a specific song. Instead, you can ask Google to play music belonging to a certain genre or to match a particular mood. The example given on the YouTube Blog is, “Hey Google, play Latin vibes”.

If you buy a new speaker, just choose YouTube Music as the default music service when setting up your Google Home. If you already own a Google Home, open the app, go to Account Settings > Services > Music, and select “YouTube Music”.
