Google Assistant can now move music between multiple devices in your home with just your voice command, including streaming YouTube videos between Chromecast and Google Nest smart displays.

If you start playing music on the Google Home Mini in your kitchen, just say, “Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker.”

“Stream transfer is a new feature that lets you easily move music, videos, podcasts and more between compatible devices in your home using your voice, the Google Home app or the touchscreen on your Nest smart display,” the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

Users can now control entertainment with the Google Home app.

“Browse for your favourite YouTube videos on Nest Hub Max, and tap the cast control on the screen to move it to your Chromecast-connected TV. Or, say “Hey Google, play it on living room TV,'” said Google.

If you have more than one Google Home and Nest smart speaker or display, you can set up a speaker group in the Home App, and transfer music from a single speaker to the speaker group to fill your whole home with music.

Google has introduced a new feature ‘Focus Mode’ for Android devices designed to prevent its users from being consistently distracted by their smartphone.

The feature allows users to turn off distractions – like social media updates or email notifications – for a period of time, so a user can get things done without interruption.

Focus mode was first announced at Google’s developer conference in the summer as part of Android Q/10.
