From now on you can also watch the films and series on Disney Plus on smart display with the Google Assistant on board.
Disney Plus on smart displays
Disney Plus can not only be used on smart displays such as the Google Nest Hub. It concerns all smart displays with the Google Assistant on board, including the products from JBL and Lenovo. You can start streaming content by saying a voice command. Consider, for example: “Hey Google, is The Mandalorian playing on Disney Plus”.
In the past, it was already possible to play content from this video streaming service on the handy, smart screens in the house, since both the service and the hardware support Google Cast. You do not have to make that step in the app of the streaming service, since you can simply ask the smart display immediately if it wants to play the content. You can then use the touchscreen on such a smart screen for media control. This way you can pause a movie or series, fast forward, et cetera.
To do Disney Plus on a smart display, you must first link your Disney Plus account to your Google Home app or the Google Assistant. The new functionality is available in many countries, including the Netherlands. The video streaming service, and the new functionality, will be rolled out to more markets in the coming months.
This is not the only video streaming service that supports such playback options on a smart display. Netflix rolled out the option a while ago; You can also use that service on your smart display.
