Google Home can cast HBO Now to your TV of choice

Timothy J. Seppala

The Google Home platform keeps getting more capable with each passing week. Now the smart speaker can cast HBO Now to the TV of your choice. According to the Google blog post, you don't need to open the app and pick something to watch first, either. Simply say something like "Okay Google, watch The Deuce" and Assistant will start playing the '70s New York period piece on the TV of your choosing.

If you aren't an HBO subscriber, though, you could always use Home to catch up on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Riverdale. The CW's streaming app made its debut on the device back in August, but there wasn't much reason to watch at the time.
