Google Nest just announced Netflix is now available on Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max. That means if you’ve got a smart speaker-digital assistant device in your bathroom, kitchen or den, it’s now a mini TV! If not, this is another excellent reason to look at one.
Netflix joins YouTube on Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max
The smaller Hub and larger Hub Max already had access to YouTube videos, making them both also the ultimate cooking companions, with access to tons of YouTube videos ranging from cooking clips to how-to videos. Now, for the first time on any smart digital assistant-enabled display, you can add watching Netflix to your list of kitchen activities.
How to add Netflix to Google displays like Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max
Netflix is available on Nest smart displays wherever the service and Nest devices are currently available.
Here’s what to do: just ask your Google Assistant via the Nest Hub or Hub Max, “Hey Google, open Netflix” to scroll through select content and start watching with a simple tap. You can pause, play or skip forward with a simple ask. Or if you’re watching on your Hub Max while doing the dishes or making dinner, Quick Gestures lets you easily pause or resume your video—just look at the device and raise your hand.
Voice controlled TV – perfect for the kitchen
Has your latest baking endeavor left you covered in flour? You can still stream without coating your display in fingerprints. By simply using your voice, you can stream many of the services you’re subscribed to. You can turn to Hulu for your sitcoms and dramas, or get your news fix, watch hit shows, or catch the latest sports updates with CBS All Access and SLING TV. All you have to do is say “Hey Google, watch (pick your favorite show) on Hulu” and you’ll instantly start streaming.
What can I watch on Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max?
There’s so much to watch, you can consider being the one to do the dishes! Netflix joins other subscription streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, SHOWTIME and thousands of other apps that offer mobile casting support. Just open the streaming service’s app and hit the Cast icon.
Catching all your favorite shows on your Nest display just got a little more affordable, too: Head over to the Google Store for deals on Nest devices, including Hub Max, that are running over the next few weeks.
