Anyone thinking to keep their subscription? I admit I wasn't, but after playing with the app a couple days I kinda like it. Easy to use, lots of options. It can replace satellite radio if you have a decent data plan, or use the low-data option if you don't. I might upgrade to family ($15/mo) later since it gives 6 accounts that way.

Came for the GHM but might stay for the music.

It’s a no brainer for streaming music.
I use Apple Music and Spotify (Student account) and I’ve been satisfied. Pretty much all the time I stream music off my phone whenever I’m driving so it’s really useful. Especially that you can download music before you leave your home so you’re not eating up data. I don’t really prefer radio ads... and some radio stations aren’t 4K HD (idk the radio version lol). I also have a portable speaker & alexa at home so it’s really accessible whenever I wanna listen to music.

I had signed up for spotify two weeks before this promo, so I'm for sure keeping it. Google home mini was just a bonus!

So this is my experience with this.
Ordered first one using email address X (using guest checkout) and had zero issues. Already received.
Tried ordering a second one using my wife's email (email address Y) also using guest checkout. Order got cancelled and because google never sent the confirmation
What do you mean google never sent the confirmation? Confirmation for ?

When Google cancelled the order, they never sent a confirmation email, so i had "no proof", even though i contacted google support and they sent me an email with order number and why it was cancelled. Spotify insisted they needed the email confirmation cancellation.
Honestly i could have fought it more, but it was like 36 hours before i would get a reply from them and i was getting tired of it

So weird that google didn't send out a cancelled notice order

Spotify has so much red tape barrier

A true YouTube user would realize they suck for a constant stream now since they implemented the 'Are you still listening?' feature. YT sucks. They don't want you using it for music, they want you to use Google Music.

No data needed, there should be an option in the app to download all your music/podcasts, basically whatever you want you can have downloaded on your phone over wifi and then not have to need data. Can listen to anything in airplane mode.

You don't get an email from Google, it comes from Spotify.

Verify that she's even registered for the offer by going here https://www.spotify.com/ca-en/googlehome/redeem/

Edit: link now redirects me somewhere else. I know the offer was ending today, but I figured 11:59 PM. Is it over?
My friend registered last week but never got an email from Spotify so she asked me to help and look into it.

So I asked her to try to click the link above and it Allowed her to order... will google allowed this order to go through or not based on how she never got an email that said she is now ready to order ?

Been using YouTube Music for a few months now. I find it just as good as Spotify, and it also comes with YouTube Premium. Much better value than Spotify premium.

You misread. The post I quoted said YouTube... not YouTube Music. That's totally different.
