I have a lot of music on my Windows 10 PC, and it is now paired with my Google Home speaker. How do I get it to play music from it? Whenever I ask it to play a specific album or artist, it goes to YouTube.

Hi John,
You would need to manually cast music from your windows device. A Google Nest or Google Home speaker or display can only use voice commands to access cloud streaming services and not music stored on a local network.
Edit: you can also upload your music library to your personal YouTube music account.
