Google introduces Stream Transfer to move media between smart devices

Google introduces Stream Transfer to move media between smart devices

You will be able to transfer music from a single speaker to the speaker group following the steps above.

If you have multiple Google Home speakers or Google Nest devices dotted around your home, you may have noticed how tricky it can be to switch your music playback between them. Starting this week, all you'll need to say is, "Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker". The "stream transfer" option can be accessed with your voice via Google Assistant, or using apps. Alternatively, you could go in the opposite direction - say if you've finished distracting yourself while preparing dinner, and want to relax with the same video in the TV room - or transfer video playback between different smart displays in different rooms.

"Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker."
Just say, "Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker".

Users can also start watching a YouTube video on their Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max smart display, and then press the cast button to move it to their Chromecast-equipped TV.

Google is adding voice control to move music and video between Google Home, Nest Hub, and Chromecast devices, with stream transfer being pushed out as an update from today. Google's new Stream transfer feature will be rolled out across all Chromecast, Google Home, as well as Nest smart speakers and display today. A spokesperson told Variety that it will bring the feature to third-party smart displays in the coming months, and that it was working on bringing it to additional devices, including Android TVs, in the future. Another nice feature is the ability to transfer music from one speaker to a group of speakers in the Home App. Google Stream Transfer is already rolling out to Chromecasts and Google Home and Nest smart devices.
