How to get Google Nest to provide music and a recipe at the same time

Community Member

I can get Google Nest display a recipe but when I say Hey Google play a specific song, it switches to show the song, but then the recipe is gone.  If I ask for the recipe to return the music stops.  What is the process for getting music to play while the Nest show the recipe at the same time?

Thanks for reaching out! I am sorry to hear that you are encountering issues playing music and viewing a recipe at the same time. I understand your concern and would be more than happy to help you!


When I tried to command a recipe first, then music, I got the same issue as you, where it would override each other.


However, if you start the music first, and then open the recipe, it will work. You will be able to view the recipe and listen to your music at the same time.


Here is an article explaining how to change songs and recipe steps with their respective commands. Happy cooking!
