Google Home has a lot of hidden talents, but for 72% of smart speaker owners, all they really want to do is play music. Thing is, your Google Home or Nest smart speaker (the one with the better-sounding bass) is only as good as the streaming music service it's connected to. For that, you have to make sure you set it up right away. Linking a music service to your Google Home might sound like a basic task, but it's one that far too many people save for "later" in the rush to set up their smart speaker. Do that, though, and your speaker might not play the exact music you ask for, especially if you're already paying for a streaming service like Spotify or Pandora.
