Yeah, that does work, but half the reason for having a house full of smart speakers is to be able to stand in your kitchen with hands covered in batter and say, "Hey Google, play Radio Paradise."

Any update on this incredibly frustrating issue?

I used a recent move as an opportunity to put Google Nest, Nest Mini and Chromecast speakers throughout my new home. It works incredibly well as a whole house audio system...except for the music service I most want to listen to most of the time: RP!

About 70% of the time, TuneIn never plays anything but their intro and an ad.  As an iOS user, I can't even cast from the RP app as a workaround.

If Google won't allow RP to make a Home app, can anything be done to make TuneIn reliable? Anyone have any other possible workarounds or tricks to start RP playing with a voice command?

Pretty sure Nest is safe for now.  

But you never know what Google will cancel next.

That’s an amazing list of killed projects. Some were pretty useful. I guess you need to be a pretty diverse engineer at Google, able to jump to new and varied projects at the drop of a hat.

Has  there been any progress getting Goggle to provide you the information needed to build a Google Home app instead of using Tune-In?  Now that ADT (home security) has teamed with Google and is using Google Home for all of their new systems there will be a lot more new users out there.  Thank you, Radio Paradise is my life's soundtrack!

There is some good news and bad news here.

You can say  "Hey Google, talk to Radio Paradise"
But Google is shutting this down around June I believe.   So we're not really pointing anyone to it.

Unfortunately with Google  Assistant,  TuneIn is the only way I'm aware of to start an RP stream from voice commands.  
They have been very slow in opening this up to third parties.

The closest you can get is to start the music using one of the apps. 
( The Sonos app  or  can try casting from the the RP android app )

Then once it's playing you can give voice commands to skip, pause.
The resume command can be used to start it,  but Google doesn't remember what was paused for very long.   The Sonos on the other hand should remember for days.
Can usually walk up to it anytime and hit the play button to have it resume whatever service it was last playing.

Hi Folks, 

Just thought I'd add my query here. I imagine it's probably been discussed previously, but I couldn't see directly in the thread below. 

I'm trying to access RP playlists from Google Home voice command (either through the nest mini speaker or through my connected Sonos) . RP radio station proper won't stream as Tunein doesn't work in the UK. I don't know if anybody has been able to get a successful voice command to work?

I've tried "play RP mellow mix"; "play Radio Paradise Mellow Mix" "Play Mellow Mix from RP on Sonos" etc. etc. but nothing works. At best it keeps playing dubious electronic/house music or anything with the word 'mix' or 'paradise' in it.

It may be that it just isn't possible yet. I didn't necessarily want to use the app and cast as I was hoping to get a completely touch-free experience. I concede I may have to wait though.

Thanks in advance.

Josh
 

Sorry, Josh.  Currently there's no way to listen via TuneIn in the UK. 

On Sonos, you can use our Sonos Music Service, but that won't work with voice commands. There is a bit of voice integration between Google Home and our Android app. I'll have Jarro, our Android expert jump in on that.

Casting to Google Home is only available on our Android app. Sorry about that. 
 
Thanks!  TuneIn iPhone app does cast to Google devices, so problem worked around.  Still a mystery why Google can't directly find the alternative streams on TuneIn.

You  should be able to do this from the TuneIn app directly.    If not,  there's a few streaming apps on iOS that support casting.    Not sure which one to recommend though.

My understanding is  tunein  uses  the 320k  aac  stream.
So only step up from that would be if you have the wifi quality set to flac in the Android app before you start casting.

If you play radio paradise via tune in it will play the live stream which would be in sync.

If you use a phone/tablet  to cast to the  home speaker you can use the phone to sync.   But the only voice commands available are the generic ones like  pause/resume and skip.

I just noticed that in addition to pause, resume and skip questions about the currently playing song are also working on Google home (current song, album, year). Pretty cool. I suppose that the audio quality is also better through chromecast than tuneIn
