Yes, but the level of service and integration varies. Youtube Music can be set up as a default account on your Google Home device as the platform of choice and songs will be played automatically from YouTube music when you request. This is pretty seamless.
For other devices, there are restrictions as Google and other tech companies don't always agree on true integration. In these cases, you can still sing me music but you have to connect to your smart home devices like a Bluetooth speaker to the YouTube music app on the phone. Here’s how:
Whether you’re using an Android or Apple phone, you need to connect it to your Echo via Bluetooth.
Open the Settings on your phone and select Bluetooth.
If you’re not seeing your Echo on the list, just say “Alexa, pair device.” to start searching for your Echo.
Once successfully paired, you can now play YouTube Music.
Apple Siri Can be enabled to work with YT Music:
