Sony Audio and Video Products That Work With the Google Assistant on Google Home


Sony has recently released firmware updates that allow Google Home users to use voice control to stream music and video to several models of new and existing Chromecast built-in Sony speakers and Android TV Sony 4K HDR televisions.



With Google Home, a voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant, users can cast several music streaming services, including Youtube Music, to turn up the volume, or skip to the next track just by using their voice, starting with "Ok Google." Google?s Multi-room group feature allows users to group Google Home and supported Sony speakers together in the Google Home app to play the same song on both Google Home and the Sony speakers using their voice or mobile device.

With Google Home, users can play music on their connected Sony devices from music services by artist, song, genre, album, playlist, mood or activity. They can also control the speaker by saying, "Ok Google, turn it up/down, play, stop, skip" etc. or ask for the music title, "Ok Google, what is playing?" and Google Home will respond.

The Multi-room feature groups virtually any combination of Google Home, Chromecast Audio or Chromecast built-in Sony speakers together for synchronized music throughout the home. Users can create a group in the Google Home app called "all speakers" and say, "Ok Google, play party playlist on all speakers." The feature allows for a rich listening experience across multiple rooms.

Sony audio products with Chromecast built-in include: The model HT-ST9, HT-NT5, HT-CT790, HT-XT2, HT-RT5 sound bars, model STR-DN1070, STR-DN1060, and STR-DN860 receivers, model SRS-X99, SRS-ZR7, SRS-ZR5, and the SRS-HG1 wireless speakers.

All Sony Android TVs support Google Home.
