Stream Music & Replace Speakers

If you bought a Google Home during the holidays or got one as a gift, you're in for a treat. First things first, Google Home is a great way to stream music or even replace your desktop speakers. It's basically a high-quality Bluetooth speaker with the brains of Google on the inside. 

This means you can use your Google Home as a dedicated speaker in your office or bedroom, and instantly stream or play music from a slew of sources. 

You can use the Google Cast feature to stream your own collection of music, Google Music, Spotify, Pandora, Deezer is coming soon, or from any other cast-enabled device in your home. Once you start streaming music from Spotify you don't have to touch your phone again. Just use your voice to skip tracks, turn up the volume, and more. 

You can even play a Podcast, and it will find it even if it's not in your library. That's neat, but there aren't too many other options or controls around Podcasts. The more you know though, right?
