Google Home is more than capable of acting as your music player, and setting it up only takes a few moments.

Google Home has a great set of speakers, making it fully capable of filling the room with music. All you need to do is link up a music account, and you'll be good to go. With options like Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music and Google Play Music, you'll always be able to listen to the music you're craving, and all you have to do is ask Google Home to play what you want to hear.
