New entertainment features coming soon!

Hey Google Nest Community,

Just in time for summer, Chromecast with Google TV and Nest Displays are getting new entertainment options and helpful features for making plans or shaking up your weeknight TV routine.

Check out new features available to try now and a few coming soon on your Nest devices.

Try it out now:
SLING TV is coming to Chromecast with Google TV
Starting later today, SLING TV channels will be fully integrated on Chromecast with Google TV. This will make it easier than ever to browse, discover and enjoy live sports, news, entertainment and more. Use the Home app to link your existing SLING account or sign up for a new one. Then navigate to the Live tab to watch your favorite live programming from SLING.

Customize events & set up household contact in your Home app
You can now customize events in your Home app feed. This includes notifications from Nest devices like your cameras, Wi-Fi and thermostats, by hiding certain categories from view and prioritizing the ones you want to see. You can change the settings directly in the feed or from the menu on any event card. 

And now when you set up a new Nest smart display or speaker from the Home app, you’ll have the ability to set up household contacts on “speed dial” for anyone in your household. So you can easily make calls from your home devices, even if they don't have a Google account.

Guest Mode gains new languages
The feature that lets anyone play music or ask questions without saving Google Assistant interactions or offering personal results is now available in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese and Korean. 

Coming soon:
Stadia is coming to Chromecast with Google TV
On June 23, Stadia will be available to play on Chromecast with Google TV. With Stadia, you’re able to play your favorite games in seconds, without waiting for downloads, updates, or installs—and you can jump from the show you’re watching right into your Stadia game on the newest Chromecast device. 

Book a restaurant reservation on your Nest smart display
Soon, making a dinner reservation at a restaurant will get even easier using your Nest smart display. Just say, “Hey Google, book a table at Osteria Morini'' or another supported restaurant in the US. You can also tap on the 'book a table there' suggestion chip when viewing the details of a restaurant. 

We hope these are helpful additions to your home, no matter what your summer plans look like. Let us know in the comments which feature you are most excited about!

I'd be a lot more interested if the update was, "make is so that the Google home I'm sitting next to responds to me, and not the one in the other room behind a closed door."

Or even, "make it so I can see and manage all the alarms for all my devices."

Utterly disappointed to see that Google has shown absolutely no interest in bringing Chromecast with Google TV to a market as large as India. Complete radio silence on this matter on all platforms when asked.

When could we have the integration between Chromecast device (video) and Nest ones (audio surround)?

Hi! This is a really exciting update! My Chromecast with Google TV was updated last night. Though I my Sling account is linked I don't see a Live tab. Are there additional steps required to enable the Live tab? Thanks!

Great! But please add the ability to lock the screens. Personally, I'd like to be able to stop guests from changing a song that's playing or touching lights, the temperature, etc.

What are you upset about everyone wants smart devices in their homes but want to have to do no leg work. They want these things to be custom setup for them and the way that they're going to use it right out of the box and besides two step authorization is not that hard can do a password and pin or a pin and a swipe. Or why not just let them sign in as guest or is you create a new home with those family members and Friends with the devices you want to share with them.
