Problems using Google home mini

Problems using Google home mini

I'm living together with a friend. He has got a Google home mini and I'm logged in and my Spotify premium account is synced with my home profile. He's using the free  I want version. While I'm logged in on the Google home he is also using my premium account, although Google can define who is asking it to play music. I could just deactivate the mobile connection of my device for Spotify but I don't want to. Is there any way to fix my problem.

Hi Fabian_fsc



After looking on the Google App. Your friend if he has an Android device
can click on the Homepage Google Home App and click Setting then Music
Streaming Apps (If Shown) and click Spotify it may ask you to authorise
this with the Spotify App. Make sure he's logged into a Premium Account
First. Can you double check that he is actually logged into your premium
account on his device as this could be the reason behind this.

Hi @Fabian_fsc

 

From what I understand is your using your profile on your friends device. What I would advise is for him to get a premium account and use that on his Spotify and then Syncing it with the Google Home App on his Phone.

That would be an option. Thank you for the quick answer. The main problem is, that he doesn't want to spend money for premium because he doesn't really need it. Is there any other option? He could just switch hit preferred streaming service but he prefers Spotify. For example if he changes his current preferred service to yt music there is no problem. But Google home can't switch between premium and non premium...
