Can You Get Discovery+ on Google Home?

To use Discovery+ with your Google Home device, you must already have set up a Discovery+ account using a web browser or the Discovery+ app. After linking your account to Google Home, you can start watching with voice commands.

Google will then start playing the latest unwatched episode or resume exactly where you left off. Your Discovery+ account syncs across all of your devices, which means you can turn off Discovery+ on your TV and continue watching on Google Home without interruption.

Once you’ve created a Discovery+ account, use the Google Home app to link it to your Google Home:

  1. Open the Google Home app on your mobile device and tap the Plus (+) in the upper-left corner of the Home screen.
  2. Tap Video under Manage Services.
  3. Tap Link under Discovery+.
  4. Tap Link Account.
  5. Enter the email address associated with your Discovery+ account and tap Continue.
  6. Enter your Discovery+ password and tap Log In & Link. If you have more than one Discovery+ profile, you’ll be asked to choose which one to use with Google Home.

Once you’ve linked Discovery+ account to Google Home, you can use the Google Home app to unlink Discovery+ from Google Home.

  1. Open the Google Home app on your mobile device and tap the Plus (+) in the upper-left corner of the Home screen.
  2. Tap Video under Manage Services.
  3. Tap Unlink under Discovery+.
