Rejoice, Google Home users, you can now use voice control to stream audio and video to your Chromecast built-in Sony speakers and Android TV Sony 4K HDR televisions. Till now, Sony users had to individually cast content to Sony devices using a phone or tablet, but from now on, you can simply talk to your Home and get what you need almost immediately.
Google Home is a voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant. Users can cast several music streaming services, including Youtube Music, to turn up the volume, or skip to the next track just by using their voice, starting with “Ok Google.” Google’s Multi-room group feature allows users to group Google Home and supported Sony speakers together in the Google Home app to play the same song on both Google Home and the Sony speakers using their voice or mobile device.
According to Mike Fasulo, President and COO of Sony Electronics, “now you can get the awesome sound and video quality of Sony products working together with Google Home. This functionality is available today for the Chromecast built-in Sony speakers and Android TV Sony 4K HDR televisions consumers already have at home, or plan to purchase for the holidays.” As per Mike, this is another example of Sony’s commitment to customer choice by delivering new and innovative technologies.
