- Business Insider 22:15February 18, 2020'Can a Google Home play Amazon Music?': How to use an Android device to play Amazon Music on your Google Home speakerHollis Johnson/Business Insider To play Amazon Music content on your Google Home speaker, simply cast it to your speaker from the Amazon Music app on your Android device.
You can't use voice commands on your Google Home to control Amazon Music the way you would with other apps.
Here's how to cast Amazon Music to your Google Home from an Android device.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. For years now, Google and Amazon have had what you might call a tense relationship.
