Nas that will shuffle to Google home speaker groups

Post by Mejisan » Fri Aug 05, 2022 6:44 pm

Hi. Looking for some advice.
I want to get some sort of (NAS?) device which periodically automatically backs up all of my Google drive files, including my music, and stores them in way that is accessible to my wifi network so i can easily use my phone to cast and shuffle through folders of music to my Google speaker groups.
Can you recommend something which is easy to set up for a non techy person

I don't know about casting to speakers..but look at this feature for mounting cloud drives

You are looking at 2 separate functions as far as I can tell.

Look at the link provided by @dolbyman for mounting cloud drives, or look at HBS3 (Hybrid Backup Sync) in your app center (install if not already there).

As for music playback, I have no suggestions as I personally use whatever app is installed on my device and simply "point" it to a NAS share that has my music. I assume this is more or less what you are already doing on your phone, so see if your music app can access a network share instead (or in addition to) local music files.
