Google Play Music uploaded/purchased music is now available on Google Home
Hello Google Home lovers,
We wanted to share some great news! All your feedback and suggestions have been heard and we are happy to announce that you can now listen to music you’ve uploaded to and purchased on Google Play Music.
On top of the subscription or free radio service, you can listen to music you’ve uploaded to and purchased on Google Play Music.
When asking for songs, albums, and artists from your library:
Free radio service (U.S. and Canada) - Uploaded/purchased content will play before the free radio station.
Subscription - Subscription on demand content will play before your purchased/uploaded content unless you ask to play it from your library using “Play X <from my library>.”, “Play my X”, etc.
A few points to note:
The "Play <genre/mood/activity>" basic voice command isn't supported for uploaded/purchased music.
If Google Play Music isn't your default music player, you need to say “Ok Google, play X <on Google Play Music>" to hear subscription/free radio/uploaded/purchased music. Only personal playlists will be prioritized above your default music player.
This feature is currently rolling out to all regions where Google Home is supported.
For more information, check out the article in the Help Center.
~Paula and the Google Home team~
- Firstly, do you know what format the files that you have uploaded are. (mp3, aac, etc.) There have been problems with some forms of compressed music before.
- If you know any more about the compress that would be great, but that's OK if you don't?
- Do the album, artist, and song titles look good if you view them on GPM via the web?
- Do they play well on the web?
- Can you cast from your mobile device or computer to your Google Home?

Don't worry about basic questions, I am only minimally proficient in this stuff. Yes I have Google Play Music with all my CDs on my laptop with Music Manager. They go into ITunes first and then Music Manager transfers them to Google Music.

I just purchased Google Home a few days ago. Should I be able to play my google music library or is this new feature still rolling out? I am not sure if there is a problem on my end or it's just not available to me yet.

I'm seeing a problem with "Hey Google, play <artist name>". Google responds with "Sure, here are some songs by <artist name> from your music library". The confirmation is clear, it identifies the artist, that there are multiple songs by that artist that should play, and that the source is *my library*. So then most times it plays one track from <artist name> and then always switches to some other (random?) track that isn't in my library. Sometimes there's a bit of a pause and it just starts playing something I didn't ask for.That's broken not just because it doesn't do what I want, but because it also breaks Google's own interaction recommendations. The response is clear and matches my intent. The actual actions however are not."Hey Google, play my <playlistname> playlist" works. At least a few times so far. <grin> Which is nice, but I don't have everything in playlists. Sometimes I like a particular artist, or genre, or whatever.Its a good shot for an alpha version.

Thanks for your response! You are correct; it plays the correct album, but it does not play it in sequential order. When I tell Google Home next track, it plays a shuffled song in the album.

When I ask it to Play XXXX from Play Music, I still get that song is only available to play music subcribers, here is a radio station. I bought XXXX from the play store, so it isn't even something that I uploaded on my own.

So glad this feature is now available. When I ask for Google Home to play a specific album (purchased/uploaded) it selects a random track from the album and does not start at Track 1. Any fixes to this that I'm missing? Thanks!

Yah, not so much. Firstly, I don't have any subscriptions. I did the "Play Jill Barber" and it said it was playing from my library. Since I don't have any subscriptions that was my expected behaviour based on the description above. Its what it does on my phone.I also did "Play Jill Barber from MY library" and the home again confirmed by voice that it was playing "Jill Barber from your library". Clearly identifying the source. I have 22 tracks, two albums and a playlist for Jill Barber.In both cases it played one song from Jill Barber and then proceeded to play something else. In the case of MY library it continued with "Until its time for you to go" by Emilie-Claire Barlow. I don't have that in my library. Its also not Jill Barber. And it continued playing other stuff. Presumably from some stream.At a guess its a problem for users who don't have any subscriptions.So it remains horribly broken imho.
