New and improved features to make your home a little more helpful

Hey Google Nest Community, 

Guess what? We have been hard at work bringing new features to your Nest devices. Some updates you may have already noticed and started using, but just in case, we want to make sure you are up-to-date with all the great new features.

Check it out now: 
The Apple TV app now on Chromecast with Google TV
The bingeing is just beginning, so grab some snacks, a drink and get cozy on the couch because the Apple TV app is now on Chromecast with Google TV.* Watch exclusive Apple Originals such as Ted Lasso and Cherry on Apple TV+, with new shows and movies added regularly.** You’ll see Apple Originals in your recommendations on Google TV, and you can add them to your Watchlist.

New to Chromecast with Google TV? Set up is quick and easy. Now you're on the way to discover even more content from many of your favorite apps, including 700,000+ movies and TV episodes, plus millions of songs. 

*Chromecast with Google TV requires a TV with an HDMI port, a Wi-Fi network, a Google Account, a nearby electrical outlet, and a compatible mobile device. Minimum OS requirements are available at g.co/cast/req. 

**Subscription required for Apple TV+.

Hands Free Controls
Can’t find the TV remote? No problem, just use your voice and say, “Hey Google, turn on the TV” to turn on your Google Assistant enabled smart TV using another Google Assistant smart device like your Google Nest Hub or mobile phone. From there you can use your voice to change the channel and volume, and even watch movies. Try it out! 

Guest Mode
We introduced Guest Mode on Nest devices, an easy way to control your privacy on your speakers and  displays, like Nest Audio and Nest Hub Max. You can enjoy all your favorite features, like asking questions, controlling smart home devices, setting timers or playing music and your Google Assistant interactions will not be saved to your account. 

Just say, ”Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode,” and your device won’t show personal results, like your calendar entries or contacts, until you turn Guest Mode off. Guest Mode is also great for when you have guests over and don’t want your smart speakers and displays to remember your search history. 

Improvements coming soon: 
Direct Photo Sharing
You can quickly share your favorite photos with friends and family from your display just by using your voice. While your photo album is being displayed, you can choose to share a photo with a simple, “Hey Google, share my photos with John.” It’s that easy! 

Now you're all caught up! So go enjoy Apple TV and discover a new favorite show. Or turn on Guest Mode to ask Google Assistant any questions without changes to your personalized results. 

We hope you enjoy these new features and make sure to check back in the Community for more awesome updates.

I love these new features. Keep improving Google TV & get all apps on board with Assistant (thanks Amazon Prime Video )!

I love not having to leave the app.

Also, direct photo share should have been a feature on phones a while ago. Is it?

How can you claim that you're working hard on the assistant when it's gotten WAY WORSE over the past few months, whatever you did undo it the products used to be wonderful but now they're just a nuisance.
