How to play music on Google Home without a Google Music subscription
Obviously Google Home works really well with a paid subscription to Google Music (I've been using the free 3-month subscription that came with mine) but the Mini's did not come with this and many do not have those subscriptions. The linked article will explain what other options you can use and I did find the free Google Music playlist option to work quite well. At the end of the article are also some useful additional info links. IFTTT works really well with Google Home to do some interesting things.
