Spotify is offering premium users a free Google smart speaker. Any new or existing subscribers to its premium service — either the standard individual version, or its Family or Duo memberships — can claim a free Nest Mini smart speaker. It is the latest partnership between Spotify and Google, which appear to be working closer together through software integrations as well as hardware offers. Spotify is closely integrated into Google's Assistant, allowing users to ask their phone or smart speaker for specific playlists or songs and have them play. Google has also been looking to push its smart speakers, recently updating them to a second generation that improved the speakers in an attempt to make them better for music playback.
Link Spotify to your Google Home or Google Nest
How can we help you?
Your Google Nest smart speaker can play almost any song ever recorded, but first you have to tell it which service to use -- now including Apple Music. Google teased a significant amount of additional bass and overall better sound out of the Nest Mini smart speaker, released last year. Google Home is quite the digital chameleon -- it can become a speakerphone , a game center , an audiobook library or a smart home hub , and it can change in and out of those things and more with just a word.
Voice control your music
Whether a single person or multiple people are using a Google Nest or Home speaker or display, each person can link a single account only per streaming service.
