Playing music throughout your home is one of the best perks of having Google Home speakers. With a few simple steps, you can easily set up speaker groups and fill every room with your favorite tunes. Let’s dive into how to play music simultaneously across all your Google Home speakers.

Create Speaker Groups

The first step is to create speaker groups in the Google Home app. This allows you to combine multiple Google Home speakers and control them as one unit.

  1. Open the Google Home app and tap the “+” icon in the top left corner.
  2. Select “Create a speaker group.”
  3. Check the boxes next to all the speakers you want in the group.
  4. Give your group a name (e.g., “Whole House”) and tap “Save.”

You can create multiple speaker groups for different areas of your home. For example, you might have a “Downstairs” group for the living room and kitchen, and an “Upstairs” group for the bedrooms.

Control Music Playback

With your speaker groups set up, you can now control music playback across all the speakers in each group. There are two main ways to do this:

Voice Commands

Simply say, “Hey Google, play [song/artist/playlist] on [group name].” For example:

  • “Hey Google, play Beyoncé on Whole House.”
  • “Hey Google, play my Workout playlist on Downstairs.”

You can also use voice commands to pause, skip tracks, adjust volume, and more.

Google Home App

  1. Open the Google Home app and tap the speaker group you want to control.
  2. Tap the cast icon in the bottom left corner.
  3. Select the music service you want to use (e.g., Spotify, YouTube Music).
  4. Choose what you want to play, and it will start playing on all speakers in that group.

You can also use the playback controls in the app to pause, skip, and adjust volume.

Adjust Audio Delay and Volume

Sometimes, you may notice that the audio isn’t perfectly synchronized across all speakers in a group. This is due to slight delays in the wireless transmission. Fortunately, you can adjust the audio delay for each speaker to fix this.

  1. In the Google Home app, tap the speaker group.
  2. Tap the speaker that’s out of sync.
  3. Select “Audio” > “Group delay correction.”
  4. Slowly adjust the delay slider until the audio is synchronized.

You can also adjust the volume for each individual speaker in the group to balance the sound levels throughout your home.


How many speakers can be in a group?

There’s no official limit, but Google recommends keeping speaker groups under 10 devices for optimal performance.

Can I play different music on each speaker group?

Yes, you can play different music on each speaker group simultaneously. Just use separate voice commands or control them individually in the app.

Can I add smart displays or Chromecast devices to a speaker group?

Yes, you can include smart displays and Chromecast devices in your speaker groups. They’ll play the audio portion of any music or video you cast to the group.

Why is there a delay between some speakers in my group?

This is likely due to the wireless transmission delay. Use the “Group delay correction” setting to synchronize the audio for each speaker.

Can I control speaker groups from multiple devices?

Yes, as long as the devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and linked to the same Google account, you can control your speaker groups from any of them.

With these tips, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite music throughout your entire home with just a simple voice command or a few taps in the Google Home app. Happy listening!
