Google's making it easier to move multimedia between smart speakers

Google today announced a new feature called Stream transfer that will allow users to easily move music, videos, podcasts and more between compatible devices using their voice, the Google Home app or the Nest smart display. It can also move YouTube videos between Chromecast and Nest smart displays. Roll out for the feature starts today to all Chromecasts, Google Home, and Nest smart speakers & displays. To do, you'd have to open the app from which you're casting your music, then choose the new speaker you want the media casted to.

Google continues to offer consumers new ways to interact with their smart devices and the last innovation that the search giant has just come up with is quite useful. You can move your media across devices through voice commands such as "Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker". You could say "Hey Google, move the music to the bedroom", for instance, and the track would stop playback in the first room and immediately resume in the second.

The current streaming setup can be viewed in the Google Home app, and that allows for manual control from a smartphone or tablet over stream transfer too. It essentially bridges the gap between multiple Google Home, Chromecast, and Nest devices and is aimed to make the experience easier for users who own multiple smart TVs, smart speakers, or smart displays in their homes. And earlier this summer, the company accidentally enabled Stream Transfer for a few users, which got promptly celebrated on Reddit. Just say, "Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker".

If you've set up groups, meanwhile - such as several smart speakers in one room, or a group for the whole house - it's possible to transfer music to and from that collection of speakers. It's much more limited on the video side, though, with YouTube being the only listed compatible app.
