Jazz music on Spotify with Google Home Mini in Malaysia

My earlier post regarding the Google Home Mini was Cook with Google Home Mini in Malaysia. Obviously there are lots more thing you can do with GHM and one of them is to listen to music.

One is Google Music Free. However I found the range of music with GMF is pretty limited. Another is Spotify. It is quite easy to install Spotify. You can also get Spotify Free. Here are the steps

Download and open the Google Home app.
Tap the menu in the top-left corner.
Tap Account preferences.
Tap Linked media accounts.
Select Spotify and tap Link Account, then Log in to Spotify. ...
Log in using your Spotify account details.
Tap OKAY to confirm.

Once installed you will find a much wider choice of music as compared to Google Music Free. You can request for music by singer, by genre, etc. I just requested for songs by Simon and Garfunkel. - Hey Google, play Simon and Garfunkel songs.

With Google Music Free I always get - cannot find etc.

Update: I only have a free Spotify account. So when I asked for a specific artist (eg song by Elvis Presley) it gave another instead (eg song by Monkees). Was told by Support that with a free Spotify account, we can only request for music, not specific musicians. To ask for specific song or specific album or song by specific artist, we need a paid account :-(
