Can Google Home play music on multiple speakers?

Yes, Google Home can play on multiple speakers!

You can play music on multiple speakers simultaneously if you have more than one Google Home speaker at home. However, you must create a group.

Make sure your devices are connected to the same WiFi network. Go to the Google Home app and navigate to Devices. Tap the Menu button and select Create Group. Give the group a name and tap all the audio devices you want to include in the group. Tap the boxes next to their names and click Save.
