Stream music to google home on voice command

Post by arjan@arpalesa.nl » Wed May 23, 2018 10:20 pm

Hi,

I've bought a google home mini. This should act as a chromecast device and the QNAP supports streaming to chromecast devices. However, I would like to make this voice activated, so I say "OK Google, play playlist 1" and then "Plalist 1" should start to play from the QNAP to the Google Home Mini.

Both Google Mini and QNAP support IFTTT, so I think I could create a IFTTT voice command trigger to the QNAP, but how would I trigger the chromecast streaming from IFTTT commands on the QNAP? I'm still new to any of these techniques, so any help would be appreciated, also if there is a better way to set this up that would be great 8)

Hi MicaelSee, sorry for my delayed response. No, I did not got this to work yet, just started a new topi viewtopic.php?f=24&t=143948&p=687679&hilit=chromecast#p687679 asking to implement the feature.

I can start music from the QNAP using IFTTT from google home, but only to start playing on local audio output, not using a chromecast device. This is possible within the Music Station so the QNAP should be able to do this.

Hi Mamaplank,

Could you share how to play music from QNAP using IFTTT? I would like to create playlist on QNAP iTunes server, and tell google home, "Hey google, play 'playlist1'"
