The Google Assistant is getting new features in the recent times, especially when Google’s competition is stepping up its game in the field of AI services.  This week, the humble Assistant on your Android phone will be getting the ability to cast songs and videos to Chromecast devices.

If you have a Chromecast, Chromecast Audio, or a television or speaker with Chromecast built in, then you can try the latest casting feature on your Android phone. Simple ask Assistant to cast a song or video playing on your phone to a Chromecast supported device and it will do it.

 

However, the surprising fact about this feature is that it was already a part of Google Assistant’s abilities on Google Home. Google Home devices were able to cast audio as well as videos to Chromecast devices. Therefore, it shouldn’t have taken a long time for Google to port the ability to Google’s Assistant on smartphones. Nonetheless, those who depend on both Chromecast and Assistant on a daily basis will now be able to make their lives a bit easier.
