Audio streaming through the whole house is cool. If you already have a few Google Homes scattered around your home, it’s easy to do — a couple of switches and you’ll be ready to go.

How to Create an Audio Group on Google Home

Your first step is to set up audio groups in the Google Home app. You can create multiple groups with the same speakers, which is good if you have multiple houses and want to have multiple groups for different occasions.

To get started, launch the Google Home app, then tap the Devices icon in the top right corner.

From there, search the group for any speaker you want and tap the three-dot menu at the top right. Select «Create Group» from this menu.

On the next screen, give the group a name (use something Google Assistant can easily understand) and then select the other speakers you want to add to the group. You will need at least two speakers to form a group.

After adding columns, click the «Save» button to create the group. This should also create a new entry at the bottom of the Devices page, though I had to close the Home app and reopen it for this new card to show up.

How to use your new audio group

Audiogroups in Google Home work much the same way as any standalone speaker, either by voice command or by casting to a group.

To play something with your voice, just say «OK Google, play in <название вашей аудиогруппы>«. So, for example, I can say «Play In Flames» in the back of the house. and Google Home recognizes it as my audio group.

Similarly, you can play audio from apps that support this feature such as Pandora, Play Music, and the like. In the app, press the «Cast» button, then select your audio group. It is so simple.

How to Edit or Delete Audio Groups from Google Home

If you’ve got a new Google Home and want to add it to your group, you can do so quickly. Return to the Home app, tap the Devices button in the top corner, and then scroll down to your group.

Click the overflow menu button, and then click the Edit Group command. From there, you can add or remove columns.

Similarly, you can remove a group from the same menu by clicking on the Remove Group command.
