Google has recently updated its Google Photos app which now recognises photos of your animals stored in your device. Now, Google starts support of Google Assistant on Google Chromecast. Since, Google Chromecast doesn’t have any remote control to control the device, users now can use Google Assistant to work with it.

To make it work, you can use Google Home app and can give command via Google Assistant to your Google Chromecast device.

However, some of the Google Chromecast users have reported this new Google Assistant support and they are happily using this feature on their Google Home app. They can ask to play a particular song, can play music from Spotify, can start streaming shows from the Netflix and more.

So this new update is quite interesting and will definitely help out those people who are using Google Chromecast on a regular basis.

Apart from this, users can also take full control on YouTube.

You can even adjust the volume using your Voice Commands through Google Assistant on the Chromecast.
