Google Home receives support for Netflix and Google Photos

Google Home is one of Google’s new members this year following the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. With Google Home, the biggest search engine on Earth is now entering the smart speaker industry where it will challenge Amazon Echo. Like its rival, Google Home includes third-party integration that allows developers to integrate their services with Google Assistant. Basically, Google Home supports a number of today’s popular streaming services including Google Play Music, Youtube Music, Spotify, TuneIn, Pandora, and iHeartRadio.


Google has always been trying to expand Google Home’s availability by making it support for more services. According to the latest blog from Google, its smart speaker now includes support for both Netflix and Google Photos. In reality, Google demoed Netflix integration with Google Home back in October and Google has made it official

With the Netflix support now live, you now can link you Netflix account with Google Home and ask Google Home to play your favorite movies and shows on any Chromecast-connected TV. Besides, it is now much easier to see all your google photos on your TV thanks to Google Photos support. All you have to do is to ask Google Home to display all your images from your vacation, and your favorite topics.

However, it seems like Google Assistant doesn’t work properly here. As many users have reported that they cannot ask Assistant to stream TV content. We are hoping Google will fix it in the future update.

Previously, the biggest search engine on Earth introduced “Actions on Google” that allows third-party developers to integrate their services with Google Assistant. 2016 has been a big year for Google, as the Company launched the first smartphones that carry its own branding, Pixel and Pixel XL with exclusive features like Pixel Launcher and Google Assistant. Besides, Google released Android 7.0 Nougat for Nexus devices. 2017 is expected to be a busy year for the Search Engine, as it competes with Apple’s iPhone 8.
