Google Home plays nice with Netflix making binge-watching easier

If you have a Google Home, we bring you good tidings! You can now use the assistant to play content from Netflix on your TV. Just like when using Play Movies, you’ll be able to verbally ask Home to play a specific series, skip episodes, pause/resume playback and even rewind the show you’re watching.
To use this functionality, you’ll need to have the latest version of the Google Home application installed on your smartphone or tablet, and a Chromecast connected to your TV and Wi-Fi network. You’re also required to link your Netflix account to your Google account from within the mobile app.
Once you’ve completed the setup process, you’ll be able to say things like “OK Google, start playing season one of Merlin on Netflix in the living room,” “OK Google, play season two, episode four of KyleXY on Netflix in dad’s bedroom” or “OK Google, continue playing Shooter on Netflix” to get started.
It’s also been revealed that Google Home now works with Google Photos. As you’d expect, you can use a wide range of different voice commands to display slideshows of pictures from your library on your TV. You will, however, need to have a Chromecast installed to use this feature.
