Google Assistant is a virtual assistant that allows you to control your phone with voice commands. It can set appointments, send texts, and even play music from a variety of services. When Google Assistant won't play music, there could be a problem with the Google app, your linked Google account, or even the command that you're using to play music. When Google Assistant won't play music, it's usually an issue with the Google app, or a problem with a mismatch between the Google account you use for Google Assistant and the account you have tied to your music service. If you're having problems playing local music, you may be able to get it working by using a specific command.

Until recently, Amazon Music Storage was the best way to stream your personal music collection onto Alexa devices—provided it was encoded as MP3 files. But last December, Amazon stopped supporting new uploads for the free service; it stopped accepting paid subscriptions a month later. Alternatively, a service called My Pod lets you to stash some songs in Google Drive and access them with custom voice commands. Plex does not currently support streaming to Alexa devices from Plex Cloud servers.
