Google has announced a new feature through which customers can transfer music or movies from one Google product to another. Dubbed as Stream Transfer, it is rolling out across all Chromecasts and Google Home and Nest smart speakers and displays.
The new feature basically allows users to move music, videos, podcasts and more between compatible devices in your home by using voice, Google Home app or the touchscreen of Nest smart display. Users can move music with Google Assistant and you will need to say is, “Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker.” Furthermore, one can open Google Home application and tap on the cast button to see all the devices. One can then choose which device or group users would like to move their podcasts or music.
One can also transfer YouTube videos between Nest smart display and Chromecast-enabled TV. One can simply ask Google Assistant, “Hey Google, play it on living room TV.” Furthermore, one can also set up a speaker group in the Home application. One can transfer music from a single speaker to the speaker group to fill your whole home with music. The company has revealed that stream transfer is compatible with different audio apps, including YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, and more.
Meanwhile, Google has now confirmed that all phones launched after January 31, 2020, will run on Android 10. Google will approve the use of Google Mobile Services (GMS) on new smartphones only if the phone comes running Android 10. This means, manufacturers will not get GMS authorisation if they launch a new phone after January 31, 2020, with an Android version other than Android 10.
