The Economist on Google Nest

Community Member

Hi! I have a subscription to The Economist, and I enjoy their morning briefing - which is more in depth for subscribers than the free version. Is there any way for me to have my Google nest connect to my economist app, or just generally play the subscriber version?

Hi Ross8,


Thanks for posting.


Follow the steps below:

  1. Make sure the customer's mobile device is connected to the same Wi-Fi or linked to the same account as the speaker or display.
  2. Open the Google Home app .
  3. At the top-right, tap the account icon.
  4. Verify the Google Account on screen is the one linked to the speaker or display. To switch accounts, tap the down arrow icon  and then choose another account or Add another account .
  5. Tap Assistant Settings  and then News.
  6. Add "The Economist Radio" or any other news platform you want.
  7. Once added, you will see the lists of news platforms that you can give command to via the Google Assistant on your phone or with your Google Home/Nest speakers, click the option "Change Order" and move the Economist to the top.
