Google Assistant is an essential tool on Android phones in Spain, which is also increasingly easy to use, thanks to its shortcuts. A common action for many users is to ask the assistant to play music. When we ask it to do this, the wizard is going to use a specific application.

The problem is that the application that Google Assistant uses to play music may not be the one you want to use. Luckily, you have the ability to configure at any time what music app do you want to be used by default from the assistant on your Android phone.

Change the default music app in Google Assistant

Google Assistant app music by default

When you ask Google Assistant to play music, the wizard will open an application that is set by default. But it may happen that that application is not the one you want to use, especially if you have a premium account in applications like Spotify, you want that to be the one that will open by default. The good part is that we can customize this and choose the application that will be used by default when asking to play music. To do this, simply follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Assistant on the phone.
  2. Swipe to open full screen.
  3. Tap on your profile picture.
  4. Go to the Assistant or Services section (in some cases it will be in services).
  5. Go to Music.
  6. Choose which application you want to use.

As you already have an application selected, the next time you ask the assistant to play music, will do it using this app on your phone Android. So that you are not going to have to ask him every time you want to play music to use that particular application. Whenever you want you can change this and if you want to use a different app on one occasion, you will only have to say the name of that app when you run the command.
