Hi Guy’s,
I’ve just set up my Nest Audio speaker and when I ask it to play, for example “the Beatles” it will say “ here’s a Spotify channel that plays the Beatles” and I get other songs but if I ask my Nest Hub to play the Beatles it just plays the Beatles. Is this how they work or have I set it up wrong?
 
Regards,
Stan

Hi Stan Ould,

 

Thank you for reaching out. I understand your concern. With the Google Assistant, it requires you to be very descriptive in your commands. I have attached a list of commands you can use when requesting songs, artists, and albums. 

 

To do this: Say "Hey Google," then:

 

Request a song

"Play [song name]"
"Play [song name] by [artist name]"
"Play [song name] from [album name]"
“Play [song name] on [music service]"
"Play songs like [song name]"

 

Request an artist

"Play [artist name]"
"Play music by [artist name]"
"Play [artist name] on [music service]"
"Play songs like [artist name]"

 

Request an album

"Play [album name]"
"Play [album name] by [artist name]"
"Play [album name] by [artist name] on [music service]"

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Happy listening!
