“Google’s Stream Transfer feature is compatible with YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, and more”
Google has introduced a new ‘Stream Transfer’ feature that allows users to move music, videos, podcasts, and more between compatible devices in your home using just voice commands or via the Google Home app or the touchscreen on the Nest smart display. Considering that smart TVs, smart speakers, and displays are on the rise, having such a feature makes sense. It can be triggered just by saying “Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker.”
Furthermore, users can tap the cast button to see all the devices in your home, and then choose which device or group they’d like to move their music or podcast. One can browse for YouTube videos on Nest Hub Max, and tap the cast control on the screen to move it to Chromecast-connected TV. Or, say “Hey Google, play it on living room TV.” Moreover, if users have multiple Google Home and Nest smart speaker or display, they can set up a speaker group in the Home App.
The Stream Transfer feature can transfer music from a single speaker to the speaker group. It is compatible with YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, and more. For videos, its just YouTube for now. Stream transfer is already rolling out across all Chromecasts and Google Home and Nest smart speakers and displays.
