Create Multi-Room Speaker Groups with Google Home/Nest Devices



Playing music at home offers a lot of benefits. It can change the mood inside the house. You can feel relaxed, nostalgic, or up on your beat. The best way to surround your home with music is by having a smart audio system to play your best songs.

Google Home and Nest smart speaker devices give you excellent quality music at your convenience. With cast-enabled speakers, you can play and listen to music in different parts of your home. The control is yours, and you can specify which speaker to play your songs.

Now, Google wants to do more for you! The tech giant is launching a new update that will upgrade your control on your Google Nest devices including speakers, Smart Displays and Chromecasts. Prior to the update, you can cast music to different Nest devices, but you have to create the speaker groups first before playing the music. It is good, but there is a much better way.

With the new update, the system is reversing the process. You can start playing your song first before casting it to other supported smart speakers in your house.

Start a song on your smart display. Then, tap the cast icon at the bottom left corner. You will get the available smart speakers where you can cast your song. Tap the device you want to add, and it will start playing the music.

The good thing is your playback will not stop. Before the update, playback always stops on the device when you move your music. The new update also gives you the stereo music feature. You can create a stereo sound by adding a second device to your multi-room speaker group.

You can experience the update with music streaming apps like Spotify, Pandora, YouTube Music, and more.
