5. Sign in to your Spotify account on the Spotify page.
6. Tap “Agree” on the terms and conditions page.

Voice commands to use Spotify on your Google Home
You may ask Google Home to play your favorite music once you’ve linked your Spotify account.
Simply say, “OK Google,” and then:
“Pause [song name] on Spotify”.
“Play my Discover Weekly on Spotify”.
“Play some rock music on Spotify”.
“Turn up the volume on Spotify”.
You can also use Google Assistant to operate the Spotify app on an Android device.
You should feel free to play with it because it recognizes a wide range of variants. If you’ve made Spotify your default music service, you won’t have to specify “on Spotify,” because that will be implied.
