The Google Chromecast with Google TV is getting an update, but it’s not what we expected: it’s actually a feature to quickly access your list of content to watch with Google Assistant .
While we’re seeing the arrival of Android TV 13 on Google TV devices, it’s been six months since the Google Chromecast with Google TV didn’t receive a major update. But today, Google is rolling out a small update to make it faster to access its list of video content to watch using Google Assistant.
Ok Google, show me my playlist
Google announces that it is “now easier to access your playlist. On the home screen, just press the Google Assistant button on your remote and say “Show me my watchlist”“. It is unknown if this feature is exclusive to Chromecast with Google TV or is available on all Google TV devices. A priori, this Google Assistant command could very well be deployed on all other TV boxes and connected televisions.
Regarding its availability, we do not yet know if it is available in France or even if it will be for some time (see in a few years).

Chromecast with Google TV neglected by Google?
9to5Googlewho picked up this news, is quite critical of Google saying that “frankly, it’s a bit surprising that it doesn’t already exist» and is quite disappointed. But Google has more than one trick up its sleeve since it announced earlier that profile management was coming to Google TV.
In addition, the giant was working on a new version of its Chromecast, which would be codenamed Boreal. But as the Chromecast with Google TV is still quite new, we don’t expect this new version to come out anytime soon.
