With the addition of Actions, which allows third parties to integrate their applications with the Google Assistant, be prepared to see a host of apps being integrated with Google Home and the Google Pixel. The Nest thermostat is now integrated with the Google Pixel, and Netflix and Google Photos are integrated with Google Home. Through a Chrome Cast, you can control Netflix and Photos on your television by just using your voice to tell Google Home what to watch or what picture to display. Open your Google Home app on your smart phone, navigate to your Google Home Assistant settings, and select video and photos. If you don’t see that section, it will roll out to you later.
