Google has announced the official Netflix streaming support for its Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max smart home devices. This means that devices with Google screens can now be used as mini smart TVs. Until now, users have streamed Netflix to Nest Center via Google Cast, and now users’ accounts can be directly tied to devices.
That makes it the first smart device to integrate with Netflix , although it is speculated that if it goes well, Netflix may consider products such as Amazon’s Echo Show or Facebook Portal. Google also implements hands-free gestures to control the program, which can be paused and continued with the user’s voice or a hand raised. You can also scroll the interface manually if the user wants to.
As a result, with these additional features, Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max are now small entertainment centers in addition to normal tasks.
In addition to supporting Netflix, Google has added Cast support to Peacock, the fledgling streaming service, which means it can join Hulu, Disney Plus and HBO Max because users can play videos on Nest Hub screens.
