Getting free music on Google Nest with these steps will be easy if you subscribe to Deezer, Spotify, and Google Music. Once you’ve connected your Google Nest, you say, “OK Google, Play (Your choice of music).” Make sure the song is the services database, only then will the song be played.

Google usually offer a 30 day – day free trial of google music at purchase; you should try this to see what you’d be paying for. Once the 30-day trial ends, you need not pay to keep listening to those songs. In case you chose not to subscribe to these services, we’ve highlighted some alternatives for you below. These alternatives will let you play your favourite music on Google Nest for free – yea, you heard that right.

Once you’ve done that; just say: “Okay Google, play (the name of the playlist).

Listening to internet radio is another option. With Google Nest, you can stream music from online radio services. It is an important thing you need to know about this is the fact that you can’t control what you listen to. However, being able to listen to trending music for free is worth it. To do this; just say: “Okay Google, play (state the radio station name).”
