Google Home Now Streams Tracks From Your Uploaded Playlist On Play Music

Back in June after the Samsung Galaxy S8 arrived on the scene, Google announced that Play Music would launch an exclusive feature for S8 called New Release Radio. If you dig music but don't have the time to constantly keep up with your favorite artist's new releases, you should go check it out at Google Play Music. If Google Play Music is your main source, then this is good news indeed. The new addition to the speakers gives priority to the uploaded or purchased content on the Play Store than a radio station. This means that Google Home will play the special, extended version of a song that you've either bought or purchased and not the bog-standard version that the radio plays. Of course, you can ask the assistant to play the track from your library instead of the on-demand service.

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. New Release Radio takes what you have listened into account through machine learning when creating the playlist, giving it a more personalized feel. But as part of a server-side update, uploaded and purchased songs can now be requested and played.

Google is now rolling out the feature all across the globe, and it should soon be available in the countries where Home is supported.
