Remember Google Home? While announcing Google Home during I/O 2016, Google mentioned that Home is going to integrate with Chromecast allowing your to have seamless multi-room playback.

Google Home is a voice activated device that Google is expected to release later this year, to compete with Amazon’s “Echo”. The device was announced during Google I/O 2016. Here is the video where they gave us a demo of this new product:

Chromecast Preview Update
Google Home is still not here, so we will not be able to test this yet, but a Reddit user noticed that Google Home was mentioned in the recent update to the Preview channel.

What is there is something really going on there?
