Hey @Tokra2003, and welcome to the community.

Hope you're doing great!

 

If you listen to music on your Google Home Mini using your cell phone, it will play on the Google Home Mini, but it will not play on the device - since you can only play on one device at a time.

 

I hope this helps! If you need help with anything else, just let me know 🙂

Hey @Tokra2003.

 

Thanks for the reply! 

Yes - if someone is using your account to listen to music on your Google Home Mini, you won't be able to listen to music on your cellphone at work.

 

If someone is listening using a different account, using your Google Home Mini - then there should be no problem. 

 

I'll be right here if you have any more questions 🙂

Hey there @Tokra2003,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community!

 

No worries, all you need to do so that you and your mother can listen to music at the same time is make sure she's signed up for her own Spotify account and you've invited her account to your plan.

 

You can find more info on how to do this in this Spotify Answer.

 

Once your mother has joined your family plan successfully, she'll also need link her Spotify account to the Google Home Mini device by following the steps in this support article. This way, she can can ask it to play songs using voice commands.

 

Hope this helps clarify things but don't hesitate to let us know if there's anything else we can help with!

 

Have a lovely day 🙂
